Background: Madeira wine is a still, fortified, blended wine that is wonderfully concentrated and complex. The Portuguese island of Madeira is called the Island of the Immortals in reference to its wines, which can hold-and improve- their quality over centuries. Henriques & Henriques is one the oldest and most prestigious of the wineries in Madeira. H & H is now the largest independent producer and shipper of Madeira Wines and the only Madeira House that owns vineyards. Madeira is one of the world’s great fortified wines.
Grape Varietal: Bual grapes aged 10 years in oak cask
Country of Origin: Portugal
Tasting Notes: A rich, full Madeira, medium-colored, and fragrant. Good depth, acidity, and nutty sweetness. Full-bodied, fragrant, and fairly sweet. Bual is considered to be the most complete and best-balanced wine produced in Madeira.
