Vinification
Various quality vineyards in Ponta Delgada and Sa?o Vicente at altitudes of up to 400m.
 
Blandy's 5 year old Verdelho underwent fermentation off the skins with natural yeast at temperatures between 18°C - 21°C in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After approximately 4 days, fortification with grape brandy takes place, arresting fermentation at the desired degree of sweetness.
Blandy's 5 year old Verdelho 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.

Luxurious warm full orangey aromas.

Gorgeous full-bodied mouth feel on the palate with slightly smoked rich creamy flavours and tones of honey.
The finish is delicate and lingering.
It has been bottled when ready for drinking and will keep for several months after opening.
It is excellent as an aperitif but is also exceedingly good with soups, feathered game and patés
