AMNESIA - Madeira
Haak Vintage Madeira is the first and only Madeira made and bottled in the state of Texas. Our Blanc du Bois Madeira opens up in the glass with aromatic fragrances of dried apricots and peaches covered in caramel. Flavors of sweet nuts, toffee and honey with a soft hint of fresh oranges. Full-bodied and rich dessert wine with a blast of zesty acidity that keeps you coming back for another sip.

Owner and Winemaker, Raymond Haak, had no idea that his engineering degree would someday set in motion the gears and springs of his mind to produce world class Madeira. He has named this wine, appropriately, “Amnesia” because America has forgotten that in our early history, we had a “Love Affair” with Madeira wines!
Food Pairing Notes
Stands on its own as a dessert, but it’s delicious with white chocolate based desserts, pecan pie, peach cobbler and crème brulée.
