Broadbent Madeira Rainwater 1975

Member Review by Slipstream:

I love good Madeira. Why isn't it more popular and more available? Fairly sweet to begin with, but grows more interesting, with notes of lemon, lime, cherry, and brandy. There is a mild bitterness and chili-like warmth in the finish. Good, but not as complex as others I've tried.

A traditional medium style, aged in cask for three years before bottling. This is light, flavored with dates and softly sweet. It misses some of the classic Madeira acidity, leaving a gentle aftertaste.

Here’s a good introduction to Madeira. Appealing, straightforward flavors of caramel are followed by a tangy acidity and a walnut note on the finish. Drink now.

This modest but delicious item from the respected Broadbent firm, is an excellent choice for December sipping. Clear dark reddish-copper in color, it breathes classic and very appealing Madeira scents of dried dates and figs and mixed nuts. Smooth and gently sweet, it’s not a “sticky” dessert wine but shows good fresh-fruit sweetness built on Madeira’s sturdy core of tart, lemony acidity.
