Barberito 'The Atlantic Rain Water' (500ml)
Style/ Colour Fortified
Grape Varieties Verdelho, Tinta Negra and Sercial
Wine Making Madeira legend has it that a consignment of Madeira barrels, bound for a US merchant in Baltimore, came to be “diluted” as they stood on a rain-drenched Funchal quay. So impressed was the merchant with the result that a new style was born; ‘Rainwater’. The Atlantic Rainwater is a unique, commemorative bottling, crafted by Ricardo Freitas at the Barbeito Madeira lodges. It is a blend of Verdelho, Tinta Negra and Sercial, but not a drop of rain water! All wines were aged in barrel in the traditional Canteiro method.
Tasting notes Light gold colour. Aromas of dried fruit, lemon zest, pistachio, caramel and walnut. Very clean and pure on palate with a savoury salinity. Full, round with an extreme softness. Long and mineral fresh finish.
Food pairing Excellent as an aperitif, with salted nuts, olives, tapas, consommé and cheese.
Serving Recommendations Served best between 11-12 ºC. It will last & maintain in good condition several months once opened.
