This product can not be shipped to CA
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 a long sumptuous finish on the palate. We are very proud of our Madeira and the long list of gold and other medals it has received.

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 "Estuffagem" procedure, where the barrels of wine have been "madeirized" in a special heated cellar. The temperatures of the wine in the Estuffagem average between 102 to 106. Haak Winery's Estuffa (Protuguese for oven) was completed in early 2006, and is one of very few in the United States today. Haak Vintage Madeira is the first and only commercial Madeira made and bottled in the state of Texas.
Food Pairing Notes
Our Madeira is a dessert in itself but pairs wonderfully with chocolates, rich creamy dessert dishes and goes very well on top of ice cream.
