Barbeito Rainwater Reserva Medium Dry 5 Year Old

50cl

Made from 80% Tinta Negra and 20% Verdelho aged for five years using the Canteiro method, which is the most expensive way of making Madeira reserved for only the very best wines. Casks are placed into the hot attics of warehouses to essentially cook a little. This imparts the caramelised nut and mince pie fruit notes to the wine. The sweetness is perfectly balanced by a refreshing acidity. Best enjoyed at around 11-12°C with cheese, salted snacks, mince pies, Christmas cake or chocolate desserts or can even be mixed into the most exquisite cocktails.

Awards and/or Press Quotes
Jancis Robinson "Apricot jam and a delicate creamy caramel note. Spice and wild meadow grass. Almost a touch of tannin with full-frontal bitter orange tugging at the sweet layers and ordering them into a neat, long, dry-tasting finish. So clean and gleaming bright."
