Broadbent Madeira 'Fine Rich Sweet'
$18.19 $13.95
A favorite Madeira of ours, that reveals a stunning background of nuances ranging from warm pecan pie, to baked sultana and iotas of Turkish delight. The aroma is equally stunning, giving emphasis to notes of marzipan and wild amber honey. Allotments of poached pear were equally riveting, but I could easily end each meal with this aperitif, as it is rich, but sustainably well-balanced enough for any occasion.

About Broadbent Winery
The history of Madeira wine stretches back to the Age of Exploration, when Madeira was a frequent port of call for ships whose captains would fuel up on wine--fortified to prevent spoilage--for their trans-Atlantic journey. The blazing heat of the sea voyage transformed the flavor of the wines, a metamorphosis reproduced by a process called estufagem during which the wines are heated to as high as 60°C (140°F) and oxidated. Begun in 1996, Broadbent Madeira was inspired by Bartholomew Broadbent's father, Michael Broadbent, who called Madeira his "desert island wine," and who played a crucial role along with his wife, Daphne, in sourcing the wines and establishing the blends.
