Winemaking:
Blandy's 5 year old 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. Blandy's 5 year old Malmsey was aged in American oak casks in the traditional 'Canteiro' system. This comprises of the gentle heating of the wine in the lofts of the lodges in Funchal. Over the years the wine is transferred from the top floors to the middle floors and eventually to the ground floor where it is cooler. After this gradual 'estufagem' the wine underwent racking and fining before the blend was assembled and bottled.

Grape Varieties:
Malvasia

Tasting Notes:
Dark, golden brown with characteristic Madeira bouquet of raisins, toffee and nuts. Sweet with a rich, full bodied, honeyed and complex finish and beautifully balanced acidity.

Store and Serve Advices:
As an aperitif serve at a temperature of 10ºC; as a dessert wine serve at 16ºC.

Food Pairing:
Blandy's 5 year old Malmsey is fined and does not require decanting. It is a superb accompaniment to dessert dishes, especially fruit, cakes, rich chocolate puddings and cheeses. It has been bottled when ready for drinking and will keep for several months after opening.

86 points - Blandys 5 years Malmsey Rich Madeira

The non-vintage 5-Year-Old Malmsey has a more oxidative nose than expected and ,like the Bual, there is too much volatility shrouding the aromatics. The palate is light for a Malmsey, with a pleasant tangy marmalade entry complemented by Clementine and quince. The finish is nicely composed and pure.

86 points - Blandys 5 years Malmsey Rich Madeira

Sweet, and full of caramel and butterscotch flavors, without the complexity and length. A good introduction to Malmsey. Drink now.
