Vinification
For 200 years, Blandy's Madeira has been synonymous with quality Madeira wine.
The Blandys are unique in being the only family of all the original founders of the Madeira wine trade to still own and manage their own original wine company. The family has played a leading role in the development of Madeira wine throughout its long history and members of the family continue to live on Madeira, maintaining a tradition that goes back to 1811
 
Blandy's 15 year old Rich 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 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

Suggestions
Characteristic bouquet with complex dried fruits and wood, toffee and vanilla
Colour of strong coffee
At this age, the wine's sweetness is slightly subdued, so the grape character begins to come through with considerable complexity. The expected nuttiness is amplified with hints of dried citrus peel on the very long finish
Lovely persistent aftertaste
It has been bottled when ready for drinking and will keep for several months after opening
It is excellent as an after dinner drink and also very good with fruit, milk chocolate, cakes and hard cheesess
