The famous Portuguese island, Madeira, is the source of some of the best value and longest-lived wines in the world. Wine making on the island goes back to the ‘Age of Discovery,’ as early as the 15th century when Madeira was an important port of call between the old and new world.
100% Malvasia – also referred to as “Malmsey”.
Madeira is a fortified wine that depends upon heat and evaporation to create its unique and long lasting styles. The must is fortified to arrest fermentation to achieve the sweeter Malmsey or Bual style.
The Canteiro process is employed for the 10 year old Madeiras from Henriques & Henriques – whereby the wine is heated naturally in lofts, in old casks, over many years. This not only concentrates the wine, but creates the unique caramel and toasted character.
