Begun in 1996, Broadbent Madeira was inspired by Bartholomew Broadbent’s father, Michael Broadbent, who called Madeira his “desert island wine,” and who played a crucial role in sourcing the wines and establishing the blends. Bartholomew Broadbent, who spent more than a decade reintroducing Madeira to the U.S. market, was determined to create a line of Madeiras to compete with the best in the world.

VITICULTURE/VINIFICATION
Vines planted in terraces to overcome the natural slope of the land. On the north coast protected with hedges in order to protect the vineyards from the sea winds. Vineyards facing south and east depending on your location. Grapes are sourced from 10 to 20 year old vines in volcanic soil in the areas of São Vicente and Arco de São Jorge, Câmara de Lobos, Estreito de Câmara de Lobos and Calheta. Manual harvest began in September, following Espalier and Latada (part of the Arnsburger) vine training system. Rigorous grape quality selection, The grapes are totally destemmed, crushed and pressed. Fermentation is carried at controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks (100%).

“Citrus color, fresh citrus and tropical fruit, sea breeze and mineral notes. Medium bodied on the palate with
refreshing acidity.”
