Henriques & Henriques (H&H) 10 Year Old Sercial Madeira

SKU #1324199

This Sercial is delicious, opening with a salty, old wood, nearly Amontillado Sherry like aromatic profile, though on the palate it has some sweetness, with excellent acid balance and palate presence. H&H is the only producer of Madeira who produces wine primarily from their own vineyards, an advantage they have always enjoyed since the company's founding in 1850. More than anything else, the winery is known for their Verdelho, though they also produce very good Sercial from their own grapes, as well as a tiny amount of Boal and Terrantez. All their age statements show the minimum age of wine blended in (as opposed to the average age), and most of their wines are aged the old fashioned way, in the canteiro (i.e. up in the rafters, exposed to heat and sunlight) method.

Portugal

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds.
