"“Although [Madeira] is a wine fortified by the addition of grape spirit and so is usually around 19 percent alcohol, it never tastes heavy – thanks to the high acidity of everything, even the bananas, grown on this volcanic island between the Canaries and the Azores. It can vary from bone dry and pale to richly spicy and dark brown but is always super-tangy, food-friendly and refreshing.” (Jancis Robinson, MW, www.ft.com, May 8, 2010) If you know Madeira, then the illustrious H. M. Borges house needs no introduction. If you’re a newbie, then here’s the perfect place to start your discovery of this versatile and intensely rewarding fortified wine. " Price $ 17.95
