Barbeito Madeira Sweet 3 Year Old
Notes from Barbeito Madeira:
Vineyards & Vinification:
Grapes from various quality vineyards from Estreito de Câmara de Lobos and São Vicente were used.
Grapes were pressed in a pneumatic press. Arresting of fermentation takes place at the desired degree of sweetness by adding vinic alcohol (96%).
