"The non-vintage 10-Year-Old Verdelho has a delightful, resinous bouquet with touches of mahogany bureau and hazelnut. The palate is crisp and taut on the entry, with vibrant acidity, and demonstrates more depth and chutzpah than its counterpart Sercial. The finish is focused with a subtle smoky note lingering after the wine has departed." (erobertparker).
SERVING & CELLARAGE
Blandy's 10 year old Verdelho is fined and does not require decanting. It is excellent served slightly chilled as an aperitif but is also exceedingly good with soups, oysters, feathered game and patês. It has been bottled ready for drinking and will keep for several months after opening.
wines were aged at the family’s Lodge in Funchal in the traditional "Canteiro" system, whereby the wine is gradually
transferred from the higher floors where the temperatures are higher, to the middle floors and eventually to the ground
floor where temperatures are cooler. The process of transferring the barrels is absolutely critical to ensure the right
balance of ullage and concentration. All through the ageing process, the primary fruit flavours of the wine are gently
transformed into tertiary dried fruit notes that produce unique Madeira hallmark bouquet.
This wine was regularly racked during this ageing process and was fined before bottling.
