Photographer's Note

It was new to me that Vintage Madeira can be even hundreds of years old! There is no other wine that can be stored as easily. The reason is that Madeira does not mature any more once bottled. When opened the wine can be kept for several months, even years. Vintage Madeiras are sensual, delicate and virtually limitless in their aromatic complexity. I had an opportunity to sip 1959-harvest, and found it great. The pleasant experience made me trade 70 euros for a bottle of 1980 vintage. It remains to be seen when I have the heart to open it.
