When your daughter decides that baking brownies will be the best stress buster to break away from exam study, you just cannot.. but enjoy and savour her yummy creations! And then go on further by picking the best thing in your cellar to match with these soft chocolate fuelled brownies with a crunchy outer layer. Nothing could pair as well as a glass of @blandysmadeirawine, made of Bual grapes.
Tasting Note- This scintillating #madeirawine has a distinct tawny colour with amber hues and the most tempting bouquet of cloves, nutmeg, sweet smoke woody, liquoriche, vanilla surrounding a concentrated raisin, toffee and fig fruit core. With medium sweetness and zesty appetizing acidity, wrapped around a rich and mellow yet grippy tannins, the fruit and the powerful spice intensity and acidity, matches perfectly with the sweetness and chocolate texture, making this a perfect marriage of chocolate and wine! Madeira is a fortified wine made in the Portuguese Islands of Madeira, close to the coast of Africa. It is such an under appreciated wine and not many know that it comes in varying sweetness levels (plus a crisp dry version too!) and the key is to match it with the right food to enhance the best of both your dessert and wine. If you are tempted to take a second bite of the brownie after the first sip of this tempting Madeira, means you have hit the nail on the wall! And I thank my lovely daughter for inspiring me for today’s challenge of pairing wine with chocolate! Ah...it is #heavenly!
