Taste Education: Exploring Madeira
Madeira is the forgotten cousin of the fortified wine world: while many people are familiar with port and some have a passing familiarity with sherry, few if any have more than a handful of encounters with their island cousin.
When Madeira was first shipped across the oceans, neutral spirits were added to preserve it for the journey. After a time, winemakers found that it actually benefited from the agitation and high temperatures of a long sea journey; today's Madeiras are made with a high-heat process that has its origin in that fortuitous discovery.
Join us and Blacklick Wine and Spirits' and Ale Wine and Spirits' wizard of wine, Landon Proctor, at DeepWood Restaurant on December 11 to sample eight Madeiras--two each from the four major styles of Madeira, one of each style from the Rare Wine Company's Historic series and one each from still older vintages (one of the Madeiras we will sample celebrated its 100th birthday this year). Light snacks, appropriate to the wine, will be provided as well.
