Barbeito are one of the smallest Madeira Wine producers, only founded in 1946 but has an extraordinary reputation. Ricardo, the founder’s grandson took over in the ‘90’s, reinventing the traditional wines and techniques. He was the first to bottle Madeira wine without adding caramel and has also bottled from a single cask, which was once a traditional way.
A medium sweet wine with aromas of dried fruit, honey and floral notes. It has a slight smokiness on the palate yet finishes fresh and tangy. Delightful on its own, but partners very well with semi-sweet dishes (such as poached figs, ginger cake), and can be very successful with a cheeseboard.
