Food pairing: The elegance and complexity of Madeira wine makes it a harmonious partner for many different foods. Thanks to the unique range of flavours of Madeira wine, it can be drunk and appreciated at any time. The wine is best known as a dessert wine, but in fact it mixes well with a starter or main dish, and can be enjoyed at any point during a meal, or even on its own. The mix of acidity and sweetness found in Madeira mean that it goes particularly well with certain food types, including dishes that are very flavoursome. It makes a good partner to lightly spicy or bitter dishes. Some gourmets say that Madeira is a wonderful wine to have with Eastern or Indian dishes. It is worth noting that Madeira goes well with Chinese food.
Justino’s Colheitas Madeiras are produced with the best harvested grapes from Tinta Negra. The grapes have been carefully selected and vinified. Aged in oak barrels under de canteiro process, these wines are bottled no earlier than 10 years after the harvest.
