Dessert & Fortified
Barbeito Malvasia Reserva Madeira 50cl
One of the smallest of all Madeira producers, and only founded in 1946 by Ricardo’s grandfather, and yet with an extraordinary reputation.
Ricardo Diogo de Freitas took over the winemaking at the family firm in 1993, and hasn’t looked back. He possesses energy in spades – eRobertParker calls him the Island’s “Gamechanger” and its easy to see why, but risks overlooking his commitment to tradition, or at least the reinvention of it.
Certainly a sweet wine, but with great balancing acidity. If serving as a dessert wine, partners very well with dishes which contain caramel, dried fruits, toffee and other similar flavours. Also a great wine for cheese, especially strong hard cheeses (Old Winchester, Vintage Lincolnshire Poacher etc)
