H&H Single Harvest Boal 2000: 2022 Decanter Platinum – 97 points
Enticing chocolate, mocha, praline and caramel aromatics. Pure, yet luxurious on the palate, with a long and spicy, dried fig finish. The high level of sugar is perfectly aligned with the fresh and vibrant acidity. A wine of great balance, concentration and complexity. Such purity and definition. Stunning!

H&H Single Harvest Verdelho 2007: 2022 Decanter Gold - 95 points
‘Hints of chamomile and cucumber on the nose, with underlying caramel and sultana aromatics. Great elegance on the palate. Incredible balance on the palate with a beautiful freshness and extremely persistent spicy finish. A wonderfully complex wine at a lovely stage of its development. Remarkable!’

H&H 15 Year Old Verdelho: 2022 Decanter Gold - 95 points
‘Muscovado sugar and hazelnuts on the nose with touches of leather and bursts of lemon peel on the palate. The fruit shines through with the appley acidity and sweetness perfectly aligned. A stunning example of an extensively aged Verdelho. Finishes lengthily too; a true classic.’

H&H 15 Year Old Boal: 2022 Decanter Gold – 95 points
‘Heady leather and wood polish aromatics. The palate is full, sumptuous and complex with a wonderful age-derived tangy richness and lively notes of dark treacle, chocolate and leather. The high acidity lends liveliness to the proceedings. A beautifully complex wine that remains convincing throughout and persistent on the finish.’

H&H 15 Year Old Sercial: 2022 Decanter Silver – 92 points
‘Orange peel and toffee aromas. Beautifully balanced and clean on the palate with highly refreshing acidity. Long, nutty finish. Power and finesse at once.’

H&H 20 Year Old Malvasia: 2022 Decanter Silver - 94 points
‘Enticing hoisin, caramelised demerara and rich soy aromas. Despite the rich concentration the wine has an incredibly light, silky body. Long, spicy finish’.

H&H 10 Year Old Sercial: International Gold Medal – 95 points
‘Sharper nose - bright acid, salted hazelnuts, orange, marzipan/almonds. More overt, but very pleasing.’

H&H 10 Year Old Verdelho: International Gold Medal – 95 points
Flavours of Dundee cake, with almonds and walnuts. Refreshingly crisp. A delicious wine.

H&H 15 Year Old Boal: International Gold Medal – 96 points
Engine oil green colour. Toasted walnut and hazelnut. Fresh cold tea, citrus peel, honey treacle, toffee caramel. Complex with a lovely balance between sweetness and acid.

H&H 15 Year Old Malvasia: International Silver medal – 91 points
Barley sugar and marmalade on a lovely broad palate, balanced with bright acidity. Lively floral notes too.

H&H 10 Year Old Malvasia NV: The Wine Merchant Top 100 - The Wine Merchant: Best Value Fortified Trophy
Intense and deep-coloured malmsey, showing complex notes of fig and walnuts on the nose and more than a hint of caramel and coffee on the rich palate.

H&H 15 Year Old Verdelho NV: The Wine Merchant Top 100
Flavours of delicious figgy fruit, superb racy acidity and gentle sweetness, all supported by the typical burnt-earth character of a fine Madeira wine.
