Crush On This: The Different Styles of Madeira

Madeira is not the stuff your grandmother cooked with. It is not a drink for old men with cigars in their hands. It is not a wine that is “too sweet”. Madeira is a wine for everyone and every occasion. It is a wine that, with its incredible acidity, excites the palate. It is a wine that can be enjoyed at the start of the evening, with the meal or afterwards.
