Product: 73525F
  • Ready, but will keep


Berrys’ revamped Madeira wine range is now available in the popular 50cl format. The range of four covers the gamut of styles, and all wines have been up-graded from 3 and 5 year old to the 5 Year Old Premium category. All, most importantly, have been matured by the superior 'canteiro' method, whereby the ageing is achieved naturally by allowing the casks to mature in the lofts of the lodges.

Berrys' ""Ship Series"" of Madeiras reflects the practice, common until the mid 19th century, of naming wines after the ships that carried them. The frigate Boreas visited Madeira in 1784 on its way to Antigua, taking on board four casks for the Governor of Domenica and a quarter for its 26-year-old captain, Horatio Nelson. Berrys' Boreas is a medium-sweet, Bual style Madeira, with characteristic amber colouring with gold highlights. The attractive nose of toffee apple and vanillin is carried through to the palate, which at 19 degrees of alcohol, has a wonderful balancing sweetness and characterisitic firm supporting acidity. Perfect with puddings, fruit and cheeses.
