Barbeito 10 Year Old Verdelho Madeira
Barbieto, founded in 1946, is a relatively young Madeira house but that does not stop it producing Madeira of outstanding quality.
This medium-dry Madeira has citrus, honey and wild flowers on the palate; try it with liver pâté.
One of the smallest of all Madeira producers, and only founded in 1946 by Ricardo's grandfather, and yet with an extraordinary reputation.
Ricardo Diogo de Freitas took over the winemaking at the family firm in 1993, and hasn't looked back. He possesses energy in spades - eRobertParker calls him the Island's "Gamechanger" and its easy to see why.
