1947 Madeira Reserva da Delegação
The history tells us that the main mentor of Madeira wine was Prince Henry the Navigator, who encouraged the cultivation of the Malvasia-Cândida grape variety, from Candia de Crete, on the island of Madeira, which proved to be a success. By the middle of the 15th century, Madeira wine was already being exported and its export routes included Europe, where it was considered a more refined wine and was even used as a perfume for the court ladies' handkerchiefs. The prestige of this nectar was such that it is often mentioned in history, in the arts, and the legends of some nations.
