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 for all 10 and 15 year old madeiras from H&H. By heating the wine naturally in barrels over some months it enhances concentration and consistency of the wine.
A privately owned company dating back to 1850, Henriques & Henriques is the largest independent producer and shipper of Madeira. The company has been shipping wines under their own label from the island since 1925, and unlike most of the other shippers, they actually own some of their own vineyards.
The Henriques family can be traced back to the 15th century, and actually planted the first vines on the island in 1425. Henriques & Henriques made considerable investment in their business in the early 1990s, building new premises and a new vinification centre. Most importantly, they are one of the most consistent producers of Madeira, always representing quality, depth of flavour and great value for money.
