“This is a wine that the Madeira Wine Company has bottled three times already using various of their different brands such as Blandy’s, according to market needs. Brownish, greenish tawny. Sweet, very slightly brackish nose. Lots of acidity but heavier and richer than the Blandy’s 1977. Less integrated too, with acidity the dominant component – although it seems richer than the 1977, even though the residual sugar, at 90-95 g/l, is no higher. 2008 – 2035” – 17.5pts Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, April 2010
