About the Wine
Bright crystalline, topaz color with golden highlights.
Bouquet characteristic of Madeira, intense, with notes of marmalade, toasted nuts, crystallized fuit, honey and brandy spice.
In the mouth it's sweet, soft and dense, with a long aftertaste, fresh and alcoholic, with notes of marmalade, candied fruit and toasted wood.

Blandy's harvest Malmsey 2004 is a single harvest Madeira. This wine was aged for 14 years in old American oak casks in the traditional "Canteiro" system, whereby the casks were gradually transferred from the warmer rooms of the lodge to the cooler rooms.

Ratings & Reviews

93 - Decanter:

"A very pure expression of Malvasia. A refined apricot character, and lovely savoury, smoky aromas of pistachio, barley sugar and walnut."

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Bottled in 2019, Blandy's 2004 Colheita Malmsey offers up a deep bouquet of marmalade, sultanas, candied peel, toasted pecans and cigar smoke. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, with a nicely layered core, excellent concentration, lively but nicely integrated acids and a long, lingering finish. This is a beautifully balanced wine that represents terrific value in the world of contemporary Madeira."
