  • Gold, International Wine Challenge, 2012

How rare is it to enjoy a fabulous 22 year old Madeira, a Gold medal winner too. It’s rich, complex yet remarkably fresh with notes of caramel, prunes and bitter chocolate. From one of the island's oldest producers, this is a drop to savour.

The island of Madeira, 600 miles southwest of Lisbon, is home to one of the world’s great fortified wines. Founded in 1870, Justino’s is one Madeira’s oldest producers. From their modern winery in Cancela, Santa Cruz, they combine traditional vinification practices with the most advanced technology. This mature 1999 Colheita is made from Tinta Negra Mole grapes sourced from all over the island. The wine is fortified with neutral distilled grape spirit and aged in wood where it’s gently heated in a process known as estufagem to create the signature style. The wine has prune, dried fruit and bitter coffee aromas. Sweet and caramel-like yet with distinct freshness, it is very moreish. A joy by itself and perfect with dark chocolate dessert.

"Very fluid in the mouth, cool and tangy with a lovely sour orange flavour balancing the sweetness" Jancis Robinson
