Barbeito Malvasia Reserve Madeira
A sweet Madeira that pairs wonderfully with puddings, cheeses and crystalised fruits.
Notes of honey, toasted almonds and a hint of smoke.
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 Malvasia Reserva is a very sweet wine but with a balanced acidity and 100% cask aged.
