Blandy`s Colheita Malmsey 50cl 1999
The Blandy’s are unique in being the only family of all the original founders of the Madeira wine trade to still own and manage their own original wine company, maintaining a tradition that goes back to 1811. This is a strictly limited release of single-harvest Madeira produced in 1999 from 100% Malmsey (Malvasia) and bottled in 2015 with 130g/L of residual sugar having matured for 16 years in seasoned American oak casks in the traditional ‘Canteiro’ system. This is a superbly balanced and tasty Madeira offering up lovely notes of citrus peel, dried fruits, caramel, toasted nuts and coffee grounds. Full-bodied and moderately sweet, it is nicely balanced with vibrant acidity.
