A hearty sausage and mash led, English dinner with siblings at atmospheric aged wine bar near London bridge included a Magnum of Champagne served in tiny chilled silver tankards and failed attempts to order 1980s Cos d'Estournel (the fine and rate wine list hasn't been updated for years and none of the interesting wines were on the cellar).
Dinner concluded with this modern styled Madeira. Caramel, walnuts and raisins. Very accessible. Very delicious. Not a patch on the more distinguished, older Madeiras but a good entry level option and a fun way to end the evening. — 4 years ago
