Madeira is a fortified wine that depends upon heat and evaporation to create consistent long lasting styles. 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.

A brilliant, old gold colour with green nuances. Aroma of dried fruits namely raisins, hazelnuts and walnuts and some wood in very good balance. Complex, medium dry palate of bitter almond, dried fruits, spices, green pepper and some wood. Tannins and acidity in good balance. A lasting aftertaste with the slight tang typical of this varietal.

Ideal digestif or served with rich soft cheeses.
