Producer note: "Dark, golden brown with characteristic Madeira bouquet of raisins, toffee and nuts. Sweet with a rich, full bodied, honeyed and complex finish and beautifully balanced acidity. Blandy's 5 year old Malmsey was aged in American oak casks in the traditional 'Canteiro' system. This comprises of the gentle heating of the wine in the lofts of the lodges in Funchal. Over the years the wine is transferred from the top floors to the middle floors and eventually to the ground floor where it is cooler. After this gradual 'estufagem' the wine underwe...

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Rainwater Medium Dry is an attractive wine, displaying aromas of fresh walnuts, dates and orange peel. On the palate, it's full-bodied, satiny textured and delicately sweet, with succulent acids, excellent definition and an elegantly middle-weight, drinkable profile that's true to the category. This bottle was shipped in 2015. (WK)" (11/2019) K&L Notes: Aged in oak casks for at least three years, this Madeira is esteemed for its concentrated aroma and subtle flavor. It can be served as an apéritif or as ...

93 points Wine Enthusiast: " Slightly richer than the Charleston Sercial, the Boston Bual boasts knockout aromas of toasted nut oil, orange peel and hints of dark honey or maple syrup. Despite the extra weight and sweetness, it's not cloying at all the finish is mouthwatering and long. *Editors' Choice* (JC)" (11/2006) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Nutty aromas and flavors are filled with buttery notes in this plush and sweet style. Dried apricot and mango details add to the richness. Finishes with seductive smoke, dried beef and cocoa powder components. ...

Rare Wine Company "Historic Series - Savannah" Verdelho Madeira
Back In Stock!
93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium amber with a green rim. Aromas of burnt orange, tobacco, toffee and herbs, with a hint of potpourri adding an exotic component. Broader and deeper than the Charleston, offering sappy orange marmalade, chestnut honey and toffee flavors underscored by tangy acidity. Shows a sweet, nutty quality on the smoky, gently spicy finish. I like this wine's heft and thrust. (JR)" (06/2011) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Offers a powerful aroma of marzipan and dried tropical fruits, with flavors to match. S...

94 points John Gilman: "I really like the Rare Wine Company’s Charleston Sercial bottling, which is one of my favorites in their fine historic Madeira bottling series. This wine only has one percent residual sugar, which with Madeira’s inherent tangy acids, comes across as quite dry, but beautifully buffered. The bouquet is a first class blend of white cherries, oranges, a touch of nutskin, fresh nutmeg, smoky overtones and a lovely base of soil. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and beautifully transparent, with a superb core, racy acids...

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "The sweetest and richest in the Historic series, the New York Malmsey unfolds slowly in the glass, gradually revealing layers of depth and flavor. Coffee, toffee and date notes emerge, followed by earthy, almost truffley flavors. Powerful and assertive on the long finish. *Editors' Choice* (JC)" (11/2006) 92 points John Gilman: "The Rare Wine Company’s New York Malmsey is a bit darker in color than the Boston Bual, and carries closer to five percent residual sugar. The wine is quite a bit deeper-pitched aromatically than th...

92 points Wine Spectator: "Rich and elegant, with layers of delicious dried apricot, pear and butterscotch flavors. Sweet, creamy notes fill the long, spicy finish. Excellent balance, structure and freshness. (KM)" (12/2005) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Rich and elegant, with layers of delicious dried apricot, pear and butterscotch flavors. Sweet, creamy notes fill the long, spicy finish. Excellent balance, structure and freshness."

H&H is the only producer of Madeira who produces wine primarily from their own vineyards, an advantage they have always enjoyed since the company's founding in 1850. More than anything else, the winery is known for their Verdelho, though they also produce very good Sercial from their own grapes, as well as a tiny amount of Boal and Terrantez. All their age statements show the minimum age of wine blended in (as opposed to the average age), and most of their wines are aged the old fashioned way, in the canteiro (i.e. up in the rafters, exposed to heat and ...

This 10-year Cossart Gordon is a single-varietal Bual bottling that was aged in Madeira's traditional "estufagem" process. The just-made fortified wine is placed in casks in the highest and hottest loft of their lodge in Funchal. Over the course of the 10-year ageing process, the casks are bought down to progressively cooler middle and then lower floors of the lodge as the wine stabilizes. The producer describes: "Clear, amber colour with tinges of gold and very strong legs; a bouquet of prunes, almond, vanilla, wood and toffee with a smooth, medium-swee...

Leacock "Solera 1863" "Malmsey Madeira
Back In Stock!
John Leacock sailed to Madeira from the United Kingdom (after the death of his father) in 1741 and at the age of 15 became the youngest apprentice at the firm of Madeira merchants, Catanach and Murdoch staying until his contract expired on 11 March 1749. During his apprenticeship he had been in constant contact with an old school friend, John Patient, residing at that time in Charles Town, South Carolina who suggested that they themselves should commence trading. Leacock agreed and this marks the birth of the now world famous company.

Wine Spectator: "Smooth and lush, with loads of glazed apricot, maple, vanilla and cream flavors. Fresh, focused finish. (KM)" (11/2006) K&L Notes: Cossart Gordon 5 year old Bual underwent fermentation off the skins with natural yeast at between 65°F-70°F in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After approximately 3 days, fortification with grape brandy takes place, which arrests the fermentation at the desired degree of sweetness. Producer note: "Clear, amber colour with tinges of gold; a bouquet of dried fruit, vanilla, wood and toffee with ...

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "In a recent series of entry-level Madeiras, this was a standout, offering excellent complexity and richness at a reasonable price. Nuts, toffee and dried fruit aromas and flavors swirl together, balancing moderate sweetness with harmonious acids. Long on the finish. *Editor's Choice* (JC)" (11/2006) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Lively and rich, with a hazelnut nose and apricot, pear and almond flavors. Long, spice- and mineral-filled finish. Quite fresh-tasting. (KM, Web Only- 2008)" K&L Notes: Sercial is the driest style o...


This Madeira is made from the Sercial grape, the driest of all the wines from the great island vineyard. It has a nose that reminds me of salty pistachios, with sweet, dried fruit in the background. On the palate the wine has quite a bit of body for a Sercial, but it is still the driest in our selection. This wine has the concentration of the richer Madeira's, without the sweetness.

92 points Wine Spectator: "Toasted sesame, date, walnut bread and cocoa notes mingle here, giving this a solid bass line, while a racy ginger streak imparts spine. The finish is sweet along the edges, with a slightly austere bitter almond accent running down the middle. Drink now. 2,500 cases made. (JM)" (07/2017) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1999 Colheita offers up a rich bouquet of dates, figs, brown sugar, walnuts and honey. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and supple, with an open-knit, layered and nicely concentra...
