Rare Wine Co. Malmsey Special Reserve

The Rare Wine Co., Madeira, Historic Series, New York Malmsey, Special Reserve nv The nose is smoky and dark, with brown sugar and more than a hint of the fortifying spirit. In the mouth, the pruny character is in full force, the alcohol is perfectly integrated, the sweetness and richness play beautifully off of the acidity – this is a great Malmsey! Produced and bottled by Vinhos Barbeito in Funchal 19% purchased for $46.99 at Bottle Barn
