Notes From the Winemaker:
Blandy's Rainwater underwent fermentation off the skins with natural yeast at between 24°C - 26°C C in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After approximately 4 days, fortification with grape brandy takes place, arresting fermentation at the desired degree of sweetness.

Tasting Notes:
Rainwater is a medium dry pale Madeira that is delicious taken chilled before meals but also goes well with dessert. It’s elegant and refined bouquet has made it a universal favorite.

Blandy's Rainwater was transferred to 'estufa' tanks where the wine underwent a cyclic heating and cooling process between 45°C and 50°C over a period of 3 months. After 'estufagem' the wine was aged for three years in American oak casks and then underwent racking and fining before the blend was assembled and bottled.

Alcohol: 18% ABV pH: 3.35 Residual Sugar: 78 g/l Total Acidity: 6 g/l tartaric acid
