MALMSEY 1996

TASTING NOTES

Wine writer Jancis Robinson – “The Sercial 1995, Bual 1996 and Malmsey 1996 are admirable, each displaying the textbook respective qualities of searing delicacy, rich nuttiness and sweet creaminess of these styles. But my favourite by a whisker was Blandy’s Colheita Verdelho 1995, which combines to thrilling effect the tingling purity of Sercial with the nuttiness of Bual. According to Chris Blandy, who recently joined the family wine company, they have kept back enough stock of these wines to be able to bottle and release them later as vintage madeiras.”
