Topaz colour with golden reflections. Characteristic bouquet of Madeira with dried fruits, honey cake and oak. Sweet and full bodied. Long and luxurious aftertaste with notes of toffee.

Vinification: Fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks; maceration by pumping over at a controlled temperature of 22°C; fortification with grape brandy after approximately 48 hours, arresting fermentation at the desired degree of sweetness.

Maturation: Blandy's Colheita Malmsey 1992 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: 7.5 g/l (tartaric acid) pH: 3.42 Baume (20°C): 4.3 Reducing Sugar: 115.16 g/l Volatile Acidity: 0.66 g/l

Serving & Cellarage: Blandy's Colheita is fined and does not require decanting. It has been bottled when ready for drinking and will keep for several months after opening. It is a superb accompaniment to dried fruit, butter biscuits, praline, milk chocolate and honey cake.
