Description

A wonderful dark purple rim and great depth of colour characterise the wine’s appearance. The aromatic profile is dominated by superb youthful dark fruit. It is powerful on the initial attack, leading into a fresh mid-palate with beautifully seductive flavours of dark fruit. A great combination of power and elegance, ending in a bold, dry, lengthy and slightly green tannic finish. The length and structure of the 2017 vintage promises a long-lived wine with great ageing potential.

Rainwater Reserva, Barbeito, Madeira

Verdelho

This blend of 80% Tinta Negra and 20% Verdelho is aged in cask for 5 years naturally, without the addition of caramel and is designed to mimic the 'Rainwater Style' of Madeira. The origins of this style are ambiguous, (depending on who you speak to), but it is thought to derive from when the barrels were left outside and the wine inside took on a particular characteristic having been lashed by the Atlantic rains.  What we can be certain of is that this is a stunning style medium dry Madeira that has complex flavours of almonds, caramel, nuts and candied fruits.  The finish is long and balanced with terrific acidity.
