Henriques and Henriques - Malvasia 20 Year OldMadeira
Available 18th Mar 2018
Madeira is a fortified wine that depends upon heat and evapouration 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, 15 and 20 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.
Brilliant and dark coloured wine with gold hues. Complex aroma of dried fruits,toffee and honey with some subtle wood. A sweet and velvety flavour of dried fruits, namely raisins and honey. Good acidity and an excellent finish.
Ideal digestif or served with rich soft cheeses.
