Brandy

Macieira Brandy

Tasting Notes

On the nose, it is delicatly complex and typical of distilled wines, with subtle notes of anise and coriander due to the use of "vinho abafado." The taste is smooth, rich and well-structured, with subtle tannins. Flavors of vanilla, apricot, peach and honey are married with a discreet presence of chestnut sap.

Varieties

Distillation of wines made from grapes that thrive in the temperate climate of Estremadura, whose wine culture dates back to Roman times.

Technical Notes

Macieira is the result of the distillation of wines from select Portuguese grapes. The brandy is blended with aged fortified wines. The production is a 125 year old method of blending and ageing, using only small oak and chestnut Portuguese casks.
