Henriques and Henriques Madeira, "Special 5 Year"

25.00

Madeira is the only wine that is heated, to simulate the effects of the old round trip voyages to the East. After harvesting, the wines are fortified to 17-20% alcohol content with vinic alcohol, and stored in “estufas” -- vats heated to 45 degrees C -- for not less than 3 months. Afterwards it is allowed to cool very slowly to room temperature and left to rest for several years. Made up of Negra Mole and Sercial. Ageing in oak casks has produced this intensely concentrated and rich wine. Dark gold colored, with strong aromas and flavors of ripe fruit and a distinct caramel nuttiness. Mellow and very rich on the palate, is is ideal as an after dinner drink.
