Both Fanal Madeiras scored over 90 Points, and serve as two different expressions from the same producer, both excellent in their own right. At $25, they were both awarded Great Value awards as well.
Fanal Full Rich Madeira: Pouring a deep mahogany with amber highlights, this delightful wine shows aromas of baked toffee, walnut skin, citrus oil, and orange flesh. The palate is rich and viscous and a small amount of sweetness lingers on the wine’s long finish.
Fanal Rainwater Madeira: Vibrant aromas of decadent toffee and dulce de leche jump forth from this delicious wine, which pours a deep amber in the glass. Sherry notes and flavors of ripe orange and apple come to mind, with a velvety, viscous mouthfeel. Madeira in a nutshell!
