Description: Henriques & Henriques is a legendary producer from the island of Madeira; this is their small estate comprising of old vineyards. Their winemaking traditions have been passed down through generations, upholding the standards to create beautifully balanced wines we continue to enjoy today.

Belem’s was established in 1932 by the last surviving member of the iconic Henriques family. Belem’s Madeira pays homage to the family’s original home in Belém, Câmara de Lobos; a historic fishing village rich in history and inextricably linked to Madeira- both the island and the wine.
The estate is still owned by the Henriques family and has continued to be the most admired and well-respected producers on the island.

The 10 year Sercial is produced using whole-cluster fermentation & skin maceration; the wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks using indigenous yeasts. The wine is aged in large cask (balseiro) and pipes (pipas) for a minimum of 10 years prior to being bottled and released to market.
 
Taste: Although this wine contains 55.1 g/l of residual sugar, it presents dry on the palate. The bright acidity gives this wine the perfect balance. The fruit follows the nose on the palate; dense stone fruit, lemon zest and a spiced almond nuttiness. The fruit is backed by saline and a crushed rock minerality. The finish is long and lingering.
Cellaring Potential: Ready to enjoy, will age 15+ years
Food Matching: Enjoy as a aperitif or pair with shellfish, olives, nuts and firm cheeses
