Henriques & Henriques Bual Madeira 10 year old

SKU 53198


Although there is more sweetness here, the wine is no heavier (this is one of the miracles of good Madeira). This can go with richer dishes that are meat based or with sweeter dishes. In fact, with desserts Madeira has some real advantages over other "stickies" as it has abundant refreshing acidity, no matter what the sweetness level. Try this with fruit tarts, crème caramel, Portuguese custard tarts or tarte tartin.

Wine SpectatorSweet, with a thick texture moderated by tangy acidity, the caramel, molasses, walnut and orange flavors accelerate to a long, delineated finish with an aftertaste of the sea. Powerful and complex. Drink now.

Wine AdvocateThe non-vintage 10-Year-Old Bual has a Baume of 3.1 degrees. It has a light, slightly muffled nose. The fruit is initially subdued, although with encouragement, it offers dried lemon peel, a touch of caramel and sesame. The palate is medium-bodied with a honeyed entry and sufficient spice to offset the sweetness. The finish is nicely defined with toffee notes on the aftertaste.
