Madeira is a fortified wine that depends upon heat and evaporation to create consistent long lasting styles. The must is fortified, either to arrest fermentation for a Malmsey or a Bual, or later in the fermentation process, in the case of Sercial or Verdelho before undergoing its own very special maturation. The Canteiro process is employed for all 10 and 15 year old Madeiras from H&H where the wine is heated naturally in barrels over some months to enhance concentration and consistency of the wine. Malmsey produces a rich sweet style whilst still exhibiting delicious mouthwatering acidity.

Billiant, dark golden colour with amber shades. Flavours of dried fruits on the palate.

Ideal with consummes and pates. Madeira should be cellared upright. It loves light, heat and air, but hates frost.
