My dear Madeira

A heady rich drink for the winters night.
Thick, sweet and rich. Dried fruit and prunes on the palate with a
chocolatey caramel woody influence!

There are several different types of Madeira. This is the richest
after dinner type which is made like them all on the Portugese island
of Madeira in vast wooden barrels exposed to the summer heat which
gives it the gently oxidised characteristics!
Try any bottle from the supermarket or the excellent Duke of Clarence
£10.97 from Asda.
It will keep for ages even after it's been opened!
