Sandeman Rainwater Madeira
This beautiful and lushly forested Atlantic island was discovered in 1419. Named for the Portuguese word for "wood", Madeira produces some of the world's most unusual fortified wines. It was discovered that the long hot journey to the Indian Ocean improved the wine remarkably and the return trip made it even better. A new style of wine was born, "Rainwater Madeira" was so named in the 18th century because it is as soft as rainwater and the color of straw, glistering after a shower of rain.

Madeira is a "fortified" wine, the same as Port, and in fact comes from the Madeira islands of Portugal. A fortified wine is one that has had brandy or some other harder liquor added to it which stops fermentation leaving a very sweet wine with a much higher alcohol content than a regularly vinified wine. Usually in the 21% and above realm.
