Broadbent Madeira wines
Founded in 1996 Broadbent Madeira wines, and in particular the Broadbent familly have done much to help North Americans (and increasingly the wider world) to discover, or re-discover Madeira wine.
Broadbent have worked with Justino’s to produce their own range of excellent Madeira wines that come highly recommended.
I love the logo of crown and corkscrew!

Broadbent 10 year old Malmsey
This 10 year old Broadbent Malmsey is an award winning Madeira wine, awarded 90 points by Robert Parker in their’ wine review.
“The nose is light and elegant with hints of toffee, mandarin, and pressed flowers. The palate is smooth and sensual. It is extremely well-balanced with a graceful, spicy, almost peppery finish that demonstrates great persistency. This is an excellent Malmsey wine. —Neil Martin, eRobertParker.com #202, August 2012”
Golden color, proper citrus acidity and the dryness that goes with wood aging. At the end, though, the liquid honey flavors are dominant. —Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, December 15, 2008 was another 90 point review for this Malmsey.
