MJR Gomes Old Rich Madeira
Madeira is made in the traditional manner on the Atlantic island of Madeira. There are 4 "Noble Grapes" of Madeira: Sercial, Verdelho, Boal and Malvasia, ranging from dry to sweet, respectively; however many house-brands of Madeira are made from the extensively-grown Tinta Negra grape. The base wine is fortified with grape spirit and left to mature in oak casks. Unusually for ageing wines and spirits, Madeira casks are carefully positioned in warehouses to ensure sun exposure, for it is this warmth which caramelises the natural sugars in the wood which affords Madeira its unique flavour.
