Winemaker's Notes:

Sandeman Rainwater Madeira is made in the traditional manner on the Atlantic island of Madeira, The rich soil and volcanic subsoil give this wine a unique character which is enhanced by the winemaking and ageing in "estufas". It is light in body but full in flavour, well balanced and a good accompaniment to many classic dishes such as soups and pates. It is also an essential ingredient in classic cuisine.

Medium light amber colour with pronounced golden highlights. Clean nutty aromas, light complexity and very agreeable. Brilliant wine - a good quality young Madeira in evolution. Medium flavour, nutty and slighty complex, with a good clean finish.

The character of Sandeman Rainwater Madeira make it a perfect match for many appetisers,such as soups, bisques, foie gras or pate. It is also a respected ingredient in classic high quality cuisine and adds a unique touch of flavour to any dish.

Once open Sandeman Rainwater Madeira can remain fresh for up to 4 - 8 weeks.

About Sandeman:

The House of Sandeman was founded in London in 1790 by George Sandeman, a determined young Scotsman. From a modest start two hundred years ago as a wine merchant in the City of London, to today's impressive lodges in Oporto and bodegas in Jerez, and the world's best known brand of Port and Sherry, there has been a continuous commitment to quality. The growth of Sandeman Port and Sherries over two centuries has been based on a balance of tradition and innovation, respecting heritage but always seeking improvement. In 1980, Sandeman became part of Seagram; today, as the seventh generation of the family and Chairman of the old firm, George Sandeman continues the Sandeman commitment to the quality of Sandeman Ports and Sherries, and to the future.
