Blandy`s Malmsey 1988
The Blandy family has played a leading role in the development of Madeira wine and continues to maintain a tradition of fine wine production that dates back two centuries. This is a rare release of single-harvest Madeira produced in 1988 from 100% Malmsey (Malvasia) and bottled in 2013 with 123g/L residual sugar having matured for 25 years in seasoned American oak casks in the traditional ‘Canteiro’ system. Dark mahogany in colour, it has gorgeous notes of dried figs, coffee beans, citrus peel, spices and varnished noble woods. A deliciously smooth wine with superb harmony between intense sweetness and savoury depth.
