Henriques & Henriques, WS Boal NV

Rating: 19.5/20pts
Although without a date on the label, this wine was thought to be 50 years old when inherited by the founder of H&H in 1850. Bottled in 1927 and recorked on a number of occasions since, it always impresses. I last tasted it in 2014: still rich on a nose of Madeiran honey cake and parkin; a tang of marmalade on the palate, not especially sweet or rich but with wonderful texture and intensity, leading to a fine, almost delicate finish that goes on and on. Outstanding old wine.
