Madeira is named after the place it comes from, a volcanic island off the coast of Morocco. It is a fortified wine that is heated or baked during the manufacturing process, yet retains a high level of natural acidity. The Rare Wine Company's city series created these remarkable wines to introduce a new generation of American wine lovers to Madeira's richness and balance, and its versatility as an aperitif, dessert wine and food wine.
The Sercial is the driest wine in the series and a wine that has been served throughout meals in America for nearly 300 years.
93 Points & Editor's Choice - "The Historic Series are simply great Madeiras at reasonable prices. The Charleston Sercial is the driest of the collection, offering nutty aromas tinged with honey, caramel and maple syrup. Dried figs, honey and candied citrus flavors mark the palate, which is wonderfully smooth. The long finish features racy yet balanced acidity." - Wine Enthusiast (11/2006)
