Broadbent Madeira Rainwater NV
"Madeira, warm and luscious in both its dry and sweet variations, makes an excellent wine for winter and the holiday season. 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. FOOD MATCH: We enjoyed it by itself as an after-dinner treat, but it would have gone well with a cheese plate, or echoing the wine's aroma characteristics with a selection of dried fruits and nuts.

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
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.

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.
