Blandy's Madeira "Malmsey" Colheita 1996 (500ml)

The Blandy’s 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.

Blandy’s Madeira remains totally dedicated to the traditions, care, and craftsmanship of Madeira Wine making and has been owned by the same family for 200 years and seven generations.

Blandy’s Colheita Malmsey 1996 was aged for 15 years 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.

It is a superb accompaniment to dried fruit, butter biscuits, praline, dark chocolate and honey cake.
