Tasting Notes

Clear copper in color, this classic and very appealing Madeira breathes scents of dried dates, figs, and mixed nuts. Smooth and gently sweet, it's not a "sticky" dessert wine, but shows good fresh-fruit sweetness built on Madeira's sturdy core of tart, lemony acidity.

Staff Pick Notes

Enter Madeira: One of Portugal's most beloved and prized possessions! A fortified wine with a rich history that stretches back to the days of exploration. This Rainwater Madeira is aged 3 years in oak casks and is a young energetic expression. The hue is a shimmering golden copper, the nose is an enticing array of dried apricots and waxed vanilla fig.
