Henriques and Henriques Malvasia, 10 Years Old 50cl
Madeira from Madeira
‘I thought the Madeiras were excellent in this tasting,’ opined Tim Sykes during our 2022 Wine Champions marathon. ‘The quality really shone out.’ This malvasia proved the point, with Matthew Horsley singling out its ‘power, generosity, class and incredible value.’ Complex and inviting aromas of figs and walnuts continue on the long, rich palate with gorgeous caramel and coffee notes.

Henriques and Henriques
‘H&H’ is one of the most famous names on the Portuguese island of Madeira. Founded in 1850 by Joao Joachim Henriques, the company has a rich history and a profound knowledge of the art of making Madeira. Unlike many of the other producers on the island, Henriques & Henriques is the only company with significant holdings of its own vineyards.
Madeira is very much a wine epitomised by its traditions which current winemaker Luis Pereira captures so well across the range. H&H produces a selection of styles from the drier, crisp Sercial through to intense and deep-coloured Malmsey. A limited amount of some rare single vintages, perfect for anniversaries, are also available from The Society.
Perfect winter fireside wine with citric fruit, caramel and dried fruits, it reminds me of Christmas - but not cloying with its perfect balancing acidity reviving the palate.

… has notes of mocha, butterscotch, walnuts and fig. I’d probably make a Madeira cake to go with this one – its dense texture and craggy, sugary crusted top tastes so good with Madeira the drink.

In two: life-affirming. Plum pudding wafts beneath grilled walnuts, dried fruits, coffee, burnt toffee, Christmas cake, molasses and caramel; it lingers on and on. Full-bodied, luscious, sweet, delicious and tangy, it’s utterly dazzling stuff – and the well-judged, characteristically high acidity keeps everything in check. Spot-on for mince pies, Christmas pudding, chocolate coffee truffles, rich dark chocolate puddings and cheese. Once opened this will stay in good condition for months. It’s the definitive Christmas potation and a heavenly digestif so stock up now! This is also my desert island wine (and one of the most resilient in the world). Serve cool at around 13-16°C.

It's a tangy full-bodied wine with supreme balance, poise and asearing finish, the quince-like sweetness offset by delightfully tangy acidity.Crack it open with a bar of dark / milk chocolate, a chocolate mousse or asteamed chocolate pudding and try again at Christmas - once opened, a bottle ofMadeira will stay fresh for ages - with Christmas cake, mince pies or Stilton.Long and very pure, this is a striking wine that shows its best between 13& 14°C.
