5 Views on Madeira: A Wine of Uncompromising Intensity

North of Africa and west of Portugal, the island of Madeira produces an iconic wine of the same name that is like no other wine. And though it is …

Christmas time. Madeira & Port consumption goes up. For a short time it’s more focus on the fortified wines. That’s great but also a bit sad. Madeira is just as good anytime during the year. And it’s such a versatile drink that works great on its own, or with food. Every time I’m having a Madeira I feel excited. It’s the most breathtaking wine in the world for me. You probably know that by now. My vinous Christmas wish is that we talk more about Madeira. Drink more of the stuff as well. And that we don’t focus on the history and the century old wines that so few people ever will drink - or can afford. Let’s talk about the new Madeira, the amazing Colheitas, or the high quality of today’s 5 or 10 Years Old blends. These are the wines consumers are able to find on the shelves. There were some pretty amazing new releases during 2014. The 1988 Malmsey from Blandy’s and the 20 Years old Ribeiro Real Boal from Vinhos Barbeito, to mention two. But I was just as happy to sit down with Paulo Mendes at the newly opened Madeira Vintners, to taste through their promising 2013 samples. So, cheers to a fine 2014 & promise me you’ll drink more Madeira in 2015! Photo: Praça do Município in Funchal. #madeira #vinhomadeira #wine
