Blandys 5 Years Verdelho Madeira

For 200 years, Blandy's Madeira has been synonymous with quality Madeira wine. The Blandys 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. The family has played a leading role in the development of Madeira wine throughout its long history and members of the family continue to live on Madeira, maintaining a tradition that goes back to 1811.

Blandys 5 Years Verdelho Madeira

TASTING NOTES:
Clear, topaz colour, with a golden rim. Complex nose, revealing a fresh bouquet with raisins, dried fruits, wood and spices.
- Winemaker: Michael Blandy and Chris Blandy
- Winemaking: Blandy's 5 year old Verdelho underwent fermentation off the skins with natural yeast at temperatures between 18°C - 21°C in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After approximately 4 days, fortification with grape brandy takes place, arresting fermentation at the desired degree of sweetness. Blandy's 5 year old Verdelho 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.
- Grape Varieties: Verdelho.
- Food Pairing: Blandy's 5 year old Verdelho is fined and does not require decanting. It is excellent as an aperitif but is also exceedingly good with soups, feathered game and pate?s. It has been bottled when ready for drinking and will keep for several months after opening.
- Store and Serve Advices: As an aperitif serve at a temperature of 10ºC as a dessert wine serve at 16ºC.
