    Product description

    “The non-vintage 10-Year-Old Verdelho has a delightful, resinous bouquet with touches of mahogany bureau and hazelnut. The palate is crisp and taut on the entry, with vibrant acidity, and demonstrates more depth and chutzpah than its counterpart Sercial. The finish is focused with a subtle smoky note lingering after the wine has departed.” Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

    About the producer: Blandy’s Madeira

    Established by John Blandy in 1811, Blandy’s is the world’s leading producer of premium Madeira wine. This is the only family of all the original founders of the Madeira trade to still own and manage their company. In 1989, Blandy’s formed a partnership with the Symington’s, the famous Port House owners, to form the Madeira Wine Company. Today the company is run by Chris Blandy, members of the 6th and 7th generations. View our range.

    Winemaking Proccess

    Ageing in “canteiro”:  Wines are aged for 4 years in seasoned oak casks that are stored by grape variety and vintage and gently heat up by natural warm. The casks are never 100% full, to allow a micro-oxygenation and develop the unique and concentrated character of the wine.

    The “Estufagem”: Once Blandy’s Tinta Negra 3 years old wine is fortified, it is gently warmed up to 45°C over 4 months, then stabilised in wooden vats for two years. After cooling, the wines are aged for 2 years in Brazilian satinwood vats.

    Wines Produced

    Tinta Negra (3 years old), Sercial (5 & 10 years old), Verdelho (5 & 10 years old), Bual (5 & 10 years old) and Malmsey (5 & 10 years old), Alvada 5 years old (combining Malmsey and Bual), Tarrantez 20 years old and Bual 30 years old. They also have a collection of Vintage Madeira and in 2000 they led the way with the introduction of a high quality but affordable Madeira of a single year, known as “Colheita“.
