Bual
Henriques & Henriques 10 Year Madeira Bual ($32.99)
Clear amber with a distinct orange glint, this warming dessert wine, typical of Bual, falls behind Malmsey but ahead of Verdhelo and Sercial on the sweetness scale. Walnuts, lemons and dried stone fruit aromas and flavors are nicely framed by the tart, lemony acidic snap that makes Madeira enticing. Layered complexity and great length make this one a winner. U.S. importer: Europvin USA, Emeryville, Calif. (Dec. 24, 2000)

FOOD MATCH: Sipped alone as a dessert wine.

Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the Wine Lovers' Page name and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.

E-mail me your tasting notes, and I'll consider adding them to this page.
