Barbeito Atlantic Rainwater Madeira
From one of the smallest of all Madeira producers with an extraordinary reputation comes this lighter style Madeira.
Light Gold colour. Aromas of dried fruit, pistachio and lemon zest. Very clean and pure on palate, citric savoury flavours bringing freshness and persistence to the wine.
Excellent as an aperitif
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.
This wine is a commemorative bottling of a special and unique blend made by RR ltd and Barbeito. It has been made to recreate the lighter style of Madeira once shipped to a US merchant in Baltimore, that is said to have been diluted while awaiting shipment on a rain-drenched Funchal dock; Rainwater.
