Well, these remarkable, fortified wines keep for an age even once opened, which makes them the practical choice.

Sweeties are noteveryone’s cup of tea but this will do triple if not quadruple duty as aMother’s Day gift, an Easter egg alternative OR something to wash your Easteregg down with. Also great if you’re putting on a bit of a spread to go with aplatter of cheeses and nibbles. Rainwater Madeira is a less common style ofMadeira and tends to be lighter and fresher than others. It is still sweet butwith a lovely crisp finish, combining a nutty, fruitcake flavour with a candiedlemon zing.  The packaging is modern and fresh too making it a lovelygift.
