Blandy's Madeira Malmsey 5 Year 750ml
$66.99 price per bottle
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.
