The history of Henriques & Henriques goes back to 1425, when, according to legend, Infante Dom Henriques planted the first vines on the island of Madeira. However, the firm Henriques & Henriques was founded in 1850 as a partidista — someone who buys stocks or makes their own wine and sells it to the larger shippers — from the family's vineyard holdings on the island. In 1925, H&H began to bottle and export Madeira made entirely from their own vineyards, something unique among producers and shippers. To this day, Henriques & Henriques own the largest single vineyard on the island — the 10-hectare Quinta Grande — and boast an impressive selection of vintage and solera bottlings dating from before 1925 in the family's cellars. Perhaps most important, H&H have been in the vanguard of vineyard plantings and preservation of the noble grapes of Madeira: Sercial, Verdelho, Boal and Malvasia. Their age-statement varietal wines are viewed as the benchmark of quality. 

The H&H Tinta Negra Single Harvest 1995 is a Colheita bottling made from 100% Tinta Negra Mole. Made in the “Fine Rich” style, the 1995 boasts 100 g/l of residual sugar — the equivalent of a rich Boal or light Malmsey —exhibiting well-developed aromas of marmalade, coffee liqueur, dark chocolate and dried sultana. Perfectly balanced, with a a refreshing directness in its palate. Enjoy with aged farmhouse cheeses and roasted nuts, or for dessert with crème brûlée.
