TASTING NOTE: Justino’s is one of the oldest Madeira producers, having been established in 1870. This excellent Madeira boasts tantalizing aromas and flavours of plum preserve, fig, honey, sweet currant, marzipan, orange peel and crème brûlée. With its balanced, tangy acidity and lovely finish, this is really a terrific value. Try it with some smoked duck or a rich game pie. (Vintages panel, May 2010) Price $ 18.95
