Madeira Island (Portugal). Situated in the Atlantic Ocean, about 900 Km south-west of Lisbon and 600 Km west, from the North African coast. The geographical position and mountains landscape allows a very pleasing climate. Temperatures are about 22ºC in the summer and about 16ºC during the winter. With its mild humidity, the island weather is classified as subtropical with variations in temperature, humidity, and rainfall according to altitude.

Vines are trained on the Latada (traditionally low trellises formed by wire horizontal structures laid over trellis post, usually wood or iron) or Espalier. The harvest period usually starts mid September and concludes in the 2nd week of October. Grapes are manually harvested in several-weekly selections according to grape ripeness.

The grapes are totally destemmed, crushed and pressed. The must obtained was then allowed to ferment at controlled temperature (16º to 18ºC) in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation is stopped after 6 to 7 days by addition of neutral grape spirit (96% minimum) in order to maintain the desired sweetness degree. Vinification is carried out in strict accordance with traditional methods.

Aged in American and French oak cask in the traditional “Canteiro” system. After matured the wine underwent racking, fining and filtering before the blend was assembled and bottle.

Food pairing

Does not require decanting. Excellent for serving as an aperitif, with light creamy soups and consommés, Serrano ham, smoked game, mushrooms stuffed with garlic, pâtés and dried fruits as almonds and walnuts.
