BLANDY'S Vintage Malmsey, Madeira 1988

This remarkable wine was aged in oak for 25 years. The winery regards this vintage to be the best of the '80s. The 1988 is an incredible wine, which opens with aromas reminiscent of burnt rubber, blood orange, toffee, and poached pear. There are rich flavors of Meyer lemon, marcona almond, toffee and tangerine rind. This has incredible interplay between sweet and sour flavors. Hard to resist this out of control delicious dessert wine. The depth, richness and minerality is the best of its kind. (Best 2015-2030) - November, 2015 (OB)
