A pleasant-enough way to round of our final evening in Madeira with David and Gabriele: some tropical fruit, with a decent French oak coating, and fairly crisp, mineral length. Full. But it’s the packaging that needs the note. First, a nicely distinctive label vs. Cartuxa’s conventional labels. But second, a ridiculously heavy bottle on a white wine! The same weight as a 50cl bottle of Madeira, full!
