Notes From the Winemaker:


VINEYARDS: Various quality vineyards including Sa?o Jorge at altitudes between 150-200m.

VINIFICATION: Blandy's 15 year old Rich Malmsey underwent fermentation off the skins with natural yeast at temperatures between 18°C - 21°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 15 Y ear Old Malmsey was aged for 15 years in seasoned American oak casks in the traditional ‘Canteiro’ system, whereby the casks of this wine are gradually transferred from the top floors of the lodge, where it is naturally warmer, to the middle floors and eventually to the ground floor where it is cooler. During this totally natural ageing, the wine underwent regular racking before finally being bottled.

Alcohol: 19% ABV pH: 3.6 Residual Sugar: 125 g/l Total Acidity: 7 g/l tartaric acid

What Does It Taste Like?

Clear, dark golden brown with very strong legs. Characteristic bouquet with complex dried fruits and wood, toffee and vanilla. Sweet, smooth, full bodied, complex, and a long finish of nuts and dark chocolate.

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Thick, luscious and well-spiced, with mouthcoating creaminess and sweetened flavors of butterscotch, toffee, truffle, ginger and green olive. Marzipan and dried mint details mingle easily on the powerfully spicy finish. Drink now through 2050. " - KM (Issue Oct 15, 2015)
