N.V. Henriques & Henriques Madeira Verdelho 15 Years Old
- > Madeira
Community Tasting Note
February 24, 2014 - Clear and bright with a pale brown colour and dense legs. The nose is clean and fully developed, showing medium+ intensity aromas of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, prunes, walnut, clove and cedar. The wine is medium-dry with a high refreshing acidity, high alcohol, low tannins, medium+ body and medium+ intensity flavours of caramel, brown sugar, prunes, walnut, clove and cedar. Long finish.
It is an outstanding quality wine with a great complexity provided by the maturation process, a lingering finish, a very good overall balance with a well integrated acidity and the typicity of a Verdelho Madeira. Drink now, the wine will not improve in the bottle, but it can be kept for many years.1 person found this helpful 583 views
