Ageing Blandy’s 15 Year Old Malmsey was aged for 15 years in seasoned American oak casks in the traditional ‘Canteiro’ system, whereby the casks of this wine are gradually transferred from the top floors of the lodge, where it is naturally warmer, to the middle floors and eventually to the ground floor where it is cooler. During this totally natural ageing, the wine underwent regular racking before finally being bottled.
Consumption Blandy's 15 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.
Colour Clear, dark golden brown with very strong legs.
Aroma Characteristic bouquet with complex dried fruits and wood, toffee and vanilla.
Flavour Sweet, smooth, full bodied, complex, and a long finish of nuts and dark chocolate.
