Review Henriques & Henriques Madeira Malmsey

91 points

Madeira, from Madeira 15 years old

Solid, dependable good class Madeira. Malmsey (what a wonderful word – conjuring images of pirates as in Victorian boys’ novels – yo ho ho and a bottle of decent Madeira) pretty sweet, or rather rich (but then all good Madeira is rich even if boen dry).

Oh what a wine. Madeira is hard to describe – like Port crossed with Sherry, but not. Actually I don’t want to describe it well. I don’t want Maderia to ever be fashionable. Leave it all for me.

Thankfully there is plenty of rubbish Madeira that will put most people off.
