On the island of Madeira, the Terrantez grape is the rarest of them all. Its flavors are very exotic and dryer than others used in Madeira production. This wine would be a great gift to a wine geek. A clear topaz color, this Terrantez has greenish highlights and loaded with aromas of dried fruits - raisins, apricots, marmalade - toffee, and spice and is medium-sweet. Clean and sharp acidity balances to a lengthy finish. Pair with fruit cakes, candied fruit, cheeses, or as a digestif.

The island of Madeira is known for its distinctive varietal wines. Each varietal defines a particular style. Madeira wines are typically made from only one varietal, each made in one of the four Madeira styles: Dry, Medium-Dry, Medium Rich, and Rich. Madeira wines are fortified with grape spirit and have higher alcohol than so-called 'light' wines.

Madeira is an archipelago of volcanic in origin sitting about 1100 kilometers off the western coast of Portugal. There are (2) islands, Madeira and Porto Santo, and two small islets, Desertas and Selvagens. Vineyards occupy over half the island mass. The climate is a mix of sub-tropical and temperate. The topography is steep and mountainous with fertile volcanic soils, determining where each varietal is grown. An unusual irrigation system of canals called levadas bring water from the mountains to agricultural areas - water shortages are common here.
