... through to sweet. They use Verdelho to only make the semi dry style. It's still fortified, and a little sweet, but mainly dry and acidic. The really good Madeira is made from a red grape called Tinta Negra, and I think I'll be planting a few hundred of these vines when I get back home.

We went to a little restaurant and had a massive sea bass steak, it was lovely.
