Broadbent Madeira

About

Begun in 1996, Broadbent Madeira was inspired by Bartholomew Broadbent’s father, Michael Broadbent, who called Madeira his “desert island wine,” and who played a crucial role in sourcing the wines and establishing the blends. Bartholomew Broadbent, who spent more than a decade reintroducing Madeira to the U.S. market, was determined to create a line of Madeiras to compete with the best in the world.

Rainwater Madeira

Madeira

Harvest & Vintage Notes
We like to believe the magic of the urban legend of how Rainwater came to be: a shipment was left on the docks of Savannah, GA, the barrels absorbed the rain and created a 'diluted' style. Whatever the truth, we love this style as an aperitif over ice or as an easy cocktail with tonic and a twists of lemon. Light toffee, citrus, acidity.

Fine Rich Madeira

Madeira

Harvest & Vintage Notes
A madeira that is aged on average three years just as Rainwater is, but with a fuller body and darker color. Rich flavor, nutty, sweeter.

5 Year Madeira

Madeira

Harvest & Vintage Notes
Inarguably our best value madeira, arguably one of our best value wines, period. Our 5 year is just the perfect balance of fruit, texture, acidity, not to mention applicability. Serve as an aperitif over ice, or as a cocktail, pair it with savory foods like mushrooms, or drink on its own as dessert. Nutty, sweet, with a distinct candied orange finish.

Colheita Madeira

Madeira

Harvest & Vintage Notes
These wines are 100% Tinta Negra. Our Rainwater, Fine Rich, and 5 Year are Tinta Negra blends. We generally have two vintages stateside at a time which makes for fun comparison tastings and flight menus. Dried figs, lemon rind, full bodied.

10 Year Sercial Madeira

Madeira

Harvest & Vintage Notes
Sercial is the driest of the four white noble varieties of the island. Just like our Colheitas and our Single Casks, each 10 year madeira is made the old fashioned way - the Canteiro method. Canteiro is a named derived from the support beams on the ceiling of the winery. Warm air rises so Canteiro method wines are cooked by ambient temperature, naturally. Tangy fruit, roasted nuts, minerality.

10 Year Verdelho Madeira

Madeira

Harvest & Vintage Notes
Always a bit sweeter than Sercial, Verdelho is probably the most fun to pair with savory foods, especially soups like seafood bisque or potato leek. Tangerines, crisp, sea salt.

10 Year Boal Madeira

Madeira

Harvest & Vintage Notes
Boal (Portuguese) or Bual (English), both are Malvasia Fina. No one said the study of Madeira was easy. Our Boal is truly classic, a benchmark of the style. Toffee, cocoa, pecans.

10 Year Malmsey Madeira

Madeira

Harvest & Vintage Notes
The madeira that started it all. Our first, our baby, our pride and joy. Without showing too much favoritism, it is our favorite. This bottle should be a part of everyone's wine journey. Toffee, mandarin, floral.
