Blandy's Madeira Malmsey 5 Year 750ml      
Sku: 1022036*

Tasting notes
Dark, golden brown with characteristic Madeira bouquet of raisins, toffee and nuts. Sweet with a rich, full bodied, honeyed and complex finish and beautifully balanced acidity.

Rating
 Wine Spectator 92 points (Jun 15 2015)
Fresh and pure-tasting, with plenty of creaminess to the dried apricot, citrus peel and butterscotch flavors. Presents an unctuously spicy finish, powered by rich minerality. Drink now through 2045. -KM

Wine maker notes
Blandy’s 5 year old Malmsey was aged in American oak casks in the traditional ’Canteiro’ system. This comprises of the gentle heating of the wine in the lofts of the lodges in Funchal. Over the years the wine is transferred from the top floors to the middle floors and eventually to the ground floor where it is cooler. After this gradual ’estufagem’ the wine underwent racking and fining before the blend was assembled and bottled.

Technical notes
Alcohol: 19% ABV pH: 3.42 Residual Sugar: 123 g/l Total Acidity: 6.23 g/l tartaric acid

Food pairing
Blandy’s 5 year old Malmsey is fined and does not require decanting. It is a superb accompaniment to dessert dishes, especially fruit, cakes, rich chocolate puddings and cheeses. It has been bottled when ready for drinking and will keep for several months after opening.
