Vinification Details

  • The grapes undergo fermentation on their skins with natural yeast in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After approx. 48 hours, fortification with grape brandy takes place, arresting fermentation. The Madeira is transferred to 'estufa' tanks where it is cyclically heated and cooled over a period of 3 months. Ageing takes place in American oak casks for 3 years before the wine is racked and fined prior to being assembled and bottled.

History

  • John Blandy established Blandy's Madeira in 1811. Today, the Blandy family continue to own and operate the Madeira Wine Company, preserving a tradition that has lasted over 200 years and seven generations.

Regional Information

  • As an island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, the vineyards of Madeira are exposed to the ocean breeze. The north side of the island is cooler & more humid, whilst the south side, protected by the steep mountains, is warm & sunny. The vast majority of the vineyards are small in size and can be found from sea level up to an altitude of 800m, perched on small terraces known as "poios".
