Description

5 Year Old Madeira starts life as fermenting must and is then fortified before undergoing its own very special maturation process.Made of predominantly Tinta Negra Mole Grapes, harvest begins from mid-August due to the warm southerly climate. A unique and highly sophisticated artificial Estufa process is set up for the 5 year old wines,where termperatures rise to 45ºC before being
allowed to cool. This process takes 90 days and renders the wine completely stable. It is then aged in oak casks for 5 years, prior to bottling.

Gently aged in oak, this wine has a mellow fruity and cinnamon-like flavour with a great depth of fruit.

Serve lightly chilled to appreciate the tangy and crisp finish. Excellent with seafood and smoked fish.
