Top 10 fortified wines from the Global Masters

7. Henriques & Henriques Madeira, Verdelho 20 year old, Portugal

Madeira is undoubtedly one of the most intriguing and instantly appealing experiences in the world of drinks, particularly when offered in an aged and relatively dry style – as the judges found with this wonderful 20-year-old Verdelho from respected maker Henriques & Henriques. Richly scented with burnt caramel and roasted nuts, but with a vibrant grapefruit tang, this seemingly dry wine would make a wonderful apéritif – simply chill it to maximise the moment.
