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.
Dark garnet in colour, this wine is full of dark berry fruit such as blackberry, blueberry and black cherry. Oak ageing has contributed just a hint of smoke to the nose. The round, creamy wine delivers an abundance of the fruit flavours promised. The red fruit and oak are well integrated and the complexity of the wine plays on the palate.Delicious served with bold dishes like rib eye steak or roast pheasant.Suitable for vegetarians
This wine is a labour of love - one the accountant (Gary) did'nt know about. The DTG Shiraz is a beautiful dark garnet colour with black cherry, blueberry and mixed spice on the nose. Hints of pepper and soft oak spice are beautifully integrated with blackberry fruits and medium bodied silky tannins.This is a special occasion wine. Drink with like-minded wine lovers who enjoy sticking it to the man! Take a moment to admire the gorgeous colour of the wine, then its a perfect match to charcuterie and cheese, char grilled steak, or a meat pie.Winemaker Joanne Nash: "In 2014, I discovered an exceptional parcel of Shiraz from exclusive Victorian vineyards which I gently crushed, then tucked away in some ridiculously expensive French Oak barrels to age for 12 months. Enjoy with abandon. The wine speaks for itself with minimal intervention, purity of fruit, Shiraz at its best."Shhhh, Dont tell Gary" GOLD MEDAL Royal Melbourne Wine Awards 2019 GOLD MEDAL NZ International Wine Show 2019 BRONZE MEDAL Rutherglen Wine Show 2019
