Item Description
"Vinho Verde is traditionally non-vintage and consumed quickly, so the wine on the shelf will always be a fresh bottling. The way to make a proper Vinho Verde is to suppress the malolactic fermentation and inject carbon dioxide at bottling to give the wine its characteristic spritz. We use pneumatic presses for gentle pressing to extract the free run juice and fermentation is around 16C, which gives a slow fermentation that protects the character of the Loureiro grape. We use a special yeast QA21 which was developed in our vineyards and is now used all over the world. It gives a special character to our wines, which are produced at Quinta de Azevedo."~Importers Notes
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.

THE BEST!!!
"This is the only wine I drink, if I can help it. I order it by the case. Cool, refreshing, a tad fizzy. Perfect for the pool, the beach, or a cozy night at home. Drink it from a white wine glass or a beautiful champagne flute. It's always perfection!"

Portuguese green wine ftw!
"I love Portuguese vinho verde (green, as in young, wine). Broadbent is crisp and refreshing. Perfect for a warm day or just to have to remind yourself of warm days ;)"
