Barbeito Rainwater 5 Year Old Reserva Madeira

One of the smallest of all Madeira producers, and yet with an extraordinary reputation.

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, but risks overlooking his commitment to tradition, or at least the reinvention of it.

"I find the aroma of the Barbeito wines so much harder to describe because they are very much themselves, distinctive, not a prototype Madeira - even though they are also distinctively Madeira, if that makes any sense."

Tasting Notes

Recreating the classic style of Rainwater, with light colour a medium dry character. Flavours of raisin, dried prune and hints of almond all feature on the palate. Drinking now and will age well. Perfect with cheese or puddings, this is too good to use for sauces.
