Henriques and Henriques 1998 Single Harvest Medium Rich Madeira 50cl 19% ABV
This special single vintage bottling of Madeira started life as fermenting must and was then fortified before undergoing its own very special maturation process. Made of Tinta Negra Mole Grapes, harvest began around the first days of September due to the warm southerly climate. A unique and highly sophisticated artificial Estufa process then occurred, where temperatures rose to 45ºC before being allowed to cool. Aged in Canteiro method, naturally heated and aged in oak casks.
A dark golden colour with greenish nuances. Developed and complex aroma of honey, dried fruits and particularly hazelnuts and vanilla. A medium sweet palate of dried fruit, caramel and wood. Great balance between sweetness and acidity.
An excellent accompaniment to rich desserts and chocolates. Can also be enjoyed with coffee and as a digestif.
