“Blandy Madeira”-Tasting in May 2014, Wine 1 (non-blind). The wine was intense yellow-golden, almost amber in colour. It offered and expressive nose of orange peel, lemon peel, almond, roasted nuts, some caramel, cold smoke and a herbal spiciness. On the flavourful palate the wine was semi-sweet, with orange peel, lemon peel, roasted hazelnut, caramel and smoke, paired with medium-plus well-integrated acidity and some heat from the alcohol. The incredible length of the finish was remarkable.
