Charleston Sercial Madeira the Rare Wine Company NV

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Wine Enthusiast: ...simply great Madeiras at reasonable prices. The Charleston Sercial is the driest of the collection, offering nutty aromas tinged with honey, caramel and maple syrup. Dried figs, honey and candied citrus flavors mark the palate, which is wonderfully smooth. The long finish features racy yet balanced acidity. An Editors' Choice.

Maybe my favorite of the Rare Wine Company's trio. Sercial, the driest of the 4 noble Madeira grapes makes almost searingly acidic wines. You can hardly detect the enormous amount of residual sugar because of the acid balance.

Charleston Sercial celebrates the refined, delicate Madeiras that the 18th- and 19th-century Charlestonians prized. Like any great Sercial, this miraculously balances power and delicacy. With its nutty, tangy flavors, it is not only a wonderful apéritif, it's also great with many foods.

With its nutty, tangy flavors, and relative dryness, it is not only a wonderful aperitif, it's great with many foods.
