Notes From the Winemaker:

Topaz color with golden reflections. Characteristic Madeira bouquet of dried fruits, orange peels and notes of wood. Medium dry at first, followed by an attractive freshness of citrus flavors, with a long, luxurious finish.

SERVING & CELLARAGE
Miles Rainwater is fined and does not require decanting. It has been bottled when ready for drinking and will keep for several months after opening.

GRAPE VARIETIES: Tinta Negra Mole

VINIFICATION
Miles Rainwater underwent fermentation off the skins with natural yeast at between 24°C - 26°C in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After approximately 4 days, fortification with grape brandy takes place, arresting fermentation at the desired degree of sweetness.

MATURATION

Miles Rainwater was transferred to 'estufa' tanks where the wine underwent a cyclic heating and cooling process between 40°C and 45°C over a period of 3 months. After 'estufagem' the wine was aged for three years in American oak casks and then underwent racking and fining before the blend was assembled and bottled.

Ratings & Reviews



89 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Tangy, with notes of sea salt and juniper berry to the flavors of chestnut, dried mango and apricot. Citrus zest details show on the finish, accented by hints of light smoke and dried beef. Drink now through 2022. 400 cases imported." - –KM (Apr 30, 2016)
