This madeira has deep caramel color, as well as aromas of coffee, caramel, walnuts, dried fruit and complex spices. These flavors are rich and balanced, with long sumptuous finish on the palate. Haak Winery is the only Texas winery authorized to label this wine as a Madeira wine.

Madeira came about when Portuguese sailors rounding the globe on long journeys found that the Port they had been carrying in cargo had not only oxidized in the heat of the hull, it had also grown dense, sweeter and more concentrated in flavor. Now we mimic that process using the traditional "Estufagem" procedure, where the barrels of wine have been "madeirized" in a special heated cellar at 108F. Haak Winery's Estuffa (Portuguese for oven) was completed in early 2005, and is one of very few in the United States today.
Food Pairing Notes
This Madeira is a dessert in itself but pairs wonderfully with chocolates and rich creamy desserts dishes.
