Amber medium dark colour, with a golden green reflection (nuance) and a slow teardrop. With a characteristic Madeira bouquet, very fine floral tea with dry fruits, toffee, wood (oak-toasted), old brandy notes and some vanilla. It’s sweet, full rich, smooth, bodied, and has a long aftertaste, fresh with fine notes of vanilla and honey, with some notes of caramel and wood.
Blandy's Harvest is fined and does not require decanting. It is an excellent accompaniment to rich desserts and cheese. It has been bottled when ready for drinking and will keep for several months after opening.
Blandy’s Harvest Malmsey was aged in seasoned American oak casks in the traditional ‘Canteiro’ system. The ageing was done in the traditional ‘Canteiro’ system, whereby the wine is gradually transferred from the higher lodges’ attics, where the natural warmth of the sun contributes to the concentration of the wines, and temperatures are higher, to the middle floors, where temperatures are milder, and eventually, to the ground floor where temperatures are cooler. During this ageing, the wine underwent regular racking, and before finally being bottled, all wines are fined. All through the ageing process, the primary fruit flavours of the wine are gently transformed into tertiary dried fruit notes that produce Madeira unique hallmark bouquet.
