Fruit from various quality vineyards from São Vicente and Prazeres were used. The grapes were pressed in a continuous press. Arresting of fermentation takes place at the desired degree of sweetness by adding vinic alcohol (96%).

 

This wine was naturally aged in casks for over 10 years by the Canteiro method (without any artificial heating) and bottled in its purest state. To show it at its best serve between 11°C and 12°C. Should be kept in a cool dry place. This wine was filtered and does not require decanting. It was bottled ready for drinking and will keep well several months after opening.

 

Bright, light gold colour. Citrus notes, floral and honey. Soft in texture, well balanced and persistent.

 

Excellent as an apéritif, with consommé, smoked salmon, dried ham and pâtés.

 

“Wonderful, award-winning essence that has great revitalising acidity, beautifully balanced with just the right amount of fruitiness from the Verdelho grape that it is now very rare on the Madeira island. Serve with or without food.”
(Jancis Robinson MW, Financial Times, 19-Dec-09)
