Amber colour with golden green reflections. Characteristic bouquet of Madeira with dried fruits, tea, toffee and spices. Rich and full bodied with notes of vanilla, honey and chocolate. Sweet and smooth on the palate, with a long and fresh aftertaste.

Vinification: Blandy's Harvest underwent fermentation off the skins with natural yeast at temperatures between 18 degrees C - 21 degrees C in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After approximately 48 hours, fortification with grape brandy takes place, arresting fermentation at the desired degree of sweetness.

Maturation: Blandy's Harvest Malmsey was aged in seasoned American oak casks in the traditional 'Canteiro' system, whereby the wine is gently heated by warm air in the lofts of the company's south-facing lodge in Funchal. Over the years the casks are transferred from the top floor to the middle floor and eventually to the ground floor where it is cooler. The wine is regularly racked during the ageing process and is finally bottled when the desired balance of maturity is reached.

Specification: Alcohol by Volume: 19% Total Acidity: 5.1 g/l Baume: 4.5 pH: 3.58.

Serving & Cellarage: Amber colour with golden green reflections. Characteristic bouquet of Madeira with dried fruits, tea, toffee and spices. Rich and full bodied with notes of vanilla, honey and chocolate. Sweet and smooth on the palate, with a long and fresh aftertaste.
