Vinification
Various quality vineyards including São Jorge at altitudes between 150 - 200m.
 
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.

Suggestions
The nose is redolent of freshly baked, warm, spicy fruit dripping in golden syrup.
Deep golden brown.
The palate is lush, with a rich, fragrant, soft texture - impeccably balanced.
The finish is delicate and refreshing, and bursting with tangy, sweet lime.
It has been bottled when ready for drinking and will keep for several months after opening.
A superb accompaniment to dessert dishes, especially fruit, cakes, rich chocolate puddings and cheeses
