H&H 3 Year Old Full Rich Madeira

In stock

Product Information

This 3 Year Old Henriques & Henriques Madeira starts life as fermenting must and is then fortified before undergoing its own very special maturation process. Made of predominantly Tinta Negra Mole Grapes, harvest begins from mid-August due to the warm southerly climate. A unique and highly sophisticated artificial Estufa process is set up for the 3 year old wines, where temperatures rise to 45ºC before being allowed to cool. This process takes 90 days and renders the wine completely stable. It is then aged in oak casks for 3 years, prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes

A dark, lucious and fragrant sweet wine with aromas of caramel. Full-bodied and very fruity, rich and a very intense palate.

How to Serve

Smooth and rich, this wine should ideally enjoyed as a dessert wine or digestive.

Accolades

"I adore top flight Madeira and this brand is a superstar. The flavour is tangy and nutty but not acidic and it's rich and all-pervasive on the palate but not gloopy or cloying. Drink it with the salted chocolate and liquorice tart for a mind-blowing combination of flavours." Matthew Jukes, September 2016

"The non-vintage Full Rich 3-Year-Old is a blend of 90% Tinta Negra Mole and 10% Malmsey. The temperatures are allowed to rise to 45 degrees Celsius before being allowed to cool over 90 days, before it is aged in oak for three years. It has a creamy nose of creme brulee, nougat and almond paste. The palate is sweet and toffee-ish on the entry with good acidity. That 10% Malmsey certainly lends this Madeira lusciousness towards the finish, which would benefit from a little more delineation" Robert Parker, July 2016
