Port, Sherry & Madeira

Essentially they are wines with a boost! The ‘fortification’ is the addition of alcohol to a base wine either during or after fermentation, usually with brandy, which increases the alcohol content to around 18%. Sherry is thought to have been one of the first, the extra alcohol content helping to stabilise the wine, as well as altering the final product – making it sweet or dry depending on when fortification occurs. The most common modern forms are port, sherry, Madeira and vermouth, but across the world winemakers and spirits producers are creating new and exciting variations.
