Madeira

Henriques and Henriques, CAMARA DE LOBOS, FUNCHAL

The Henriques family were making wine in Madeira in the 15th Century, but it was not until 1850 that Joaquim Henriques established the firm of Henriques & Henriques with his brother. Today, it is the largest, and most respected independent Madeira 'house', with the lion's share of the grapes coming from vineyards owned by the Henriques family surrounding Camara de Lobos, considered by many to be the best quality vine growing area on the Island. In order to reinforce their position as the leading producer of quality wine, Henriques have planted 60 hectares of new vines on precarious terraces overlooking their winery at Camara de Lobos, terraces which are hardly viable to work, in terms of pure economics, but which will, in time, produce some terrific quality grapes. The winery itself is brand new, equipped with the most up-to-date stainless steel vats and pneumatic presses. Their Madeiras are outstanding; the Sercial is dry and pale with a strong, nutty bouquet and makes an exciting aperitif, while both the Bual and Malmsey are ideal after-dinner drinks, as they are sweeter and heavier in style. The Bual is fruity and fragrant and the Malmsey is lush and slightly sweeter.

Champagne Gremillet
Extremely elegant wines that have undergone a surprisingly long bottle-ageing process that gives them a roundness not often found at this level.
