H.M. Borges was established in 1877 and is now one of the smallest remaining family-owned producers on Madeira, steadfastly making their wine in the traditional way in their cellars in the heart of Funchal. This 10 year old Sercial punches well above its weight, and is a fine example of why this style of Madeira makes the perfect aperitif.
Light apricot colour. Creamy texture stands out, contrasting with the super-tangy bitter orange pith sour freshness. Sour and tangy but all in harmony and with notable persistence for a 10 Year Old.
