Broadbent Rainwater Madeira, Three Year Fine Rich, and Five Year Reserve are all made from a grape variety called Tinta Negra Mole. It has been popular practice for some Madeira shippers to downplay the quality of Tinta Negra Mole. In the course of his research, however, Michael Broadbent found the quality of wine produced by Tinta Negra Mole to be as high as that of the classic grapes. To create price-competitive, Three and Five Year Olds with great character, Broadbent used the excellent Tinta Negra Mole wines.
