The Verdelho grapes are fermented off the skins for about four days and therefore the wine is sweeter than the Sercial. With a average age of about 10 years in cask the wine becomes very concentrated and develops spicy and dried fruit characters with warm marmalade flavours.
A unique blend only made by Blandy’s, combining Bual’s (50%) nutty spicyiness and Malmsey’s (50%) luscious dried fruit flavours. Aged 5 years in cask.
Lovely golden-chestnut colour with a fine golden rim. Characteristic and classic Madeira bouquet of dried fruits, toffee and hints of oak and spices. Sweet, very rich, smooth and full-bodied, balanced by a very fine acidity. A long aftertaste with notes of honey and spicy oak.
