Henriques and Henriques - Bual 2000Madeira
The Canteiro process was employed for this noble Madeira. The wine is heated naturally in barrels over some months to enhance concentration and consistency of the wine. The wine is then aged in oak casks.
A dark golden wine, with greenish nuances. Well developed and complex, with intense aromas of dried fruits, namely raisins and walnuts, but also honey and vanilla. Medium sweet on the palate with complex flavours, including toffee and a touch of aged wood. A wonderfully long finish.
A very special end to a meal. Ideal with fresh fruit and strong cheeses. Madeira should be cellared upright. It loves light, heat and air, but hates frost.
