The Oddbins Take

The history of the island of Madeira is fascinating. In 1419 Madeira was discovered in the name of Portuguese Price, Henry the Navigator. Despite being dubbed the Navigator, unsurprisingly he stayed in Lisbon sipping on a White Port & Tonic, while he got two other chumps to sail around the coast of Africa. Legend dictates the Portuguese started a fire to clear some space in Funchal and the fires burned for 7 years & that's why the soil is so nutritious. That sounds apocryphal to us, we can't even keep a log burner going and we have matches, fire-lighters and rolled up copies of The Telegraph. Nonetheless, the soil is certainly well nourished and contributes to this astonishing wine, expressing a fresh and fragrant bouquet of dried fruits and spice with luxurious warm orangey aromas. Medium dry and full- bodied. Concentrated and fresh with a pleasant zesty bittersweet edge from a finally balanced acidity. Long lingering aftertaste of exotic fruits with spicy overtones.
