About Madeira Wine Company

Madeira is a fortified wine from the island of Madeira, located southwest of Portugal in the Atlantic Ocean. During the 1600s and 1700s, the wine had to be fortified to prevent spoilage and the island of Madeira was a convenient stop for voyagers to stock up on supplies, including casks of Madeira wine. During the voyage, after being subject to heat, the Madeira wines evolved, taking on deeper nutty and caramel flavours, eventually becoming a style of its own. Madeira can be produced at different levels of sweetness, and some of those offered today make truly delectable dessert wines.

Blandy's Listrao 1977 (6x75cl)

Jancis Robinson (18)

A carpenter’s workshop, filled with the scent of freshly sawn and planed wood. Sweet tobacco. A distinctly feral, ‘animal’ smell. Dried meadow flowers and hay. Dried orange-peel dust. Something almost lactic. It changes from sip to sip, moment to moment. First dry, then sweet. Bitter, for a second, then turning tender. Jagged edges melt silky smooth from along the slim ribbon of its structure. Demanding and volatile; then tucking charms into your palm. The intensity of the flavours – explosive bitter-sweet oranges, hit-gingered quince, cinnamon and cumin, sour cherries in Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena, decayed-wood dust – is startling, and yet the wine is fine-boned, almost ethereal. William Chester Minor, surgeon, wordsmith, schizophrenic and one of the greatest contributors to the Oxford English Dictionary, was attributed the quote, ‘Listen to the leaves scratch the air. Sometimes it sounds like gunfire. Sometimes like applause.’ I thought of those words when I tasted this wine. Food pairings: spanakopita; cauliflower pakora with spiced onion chutney; welsh rarebit; fried grouse with orange sauce.

Blandy's Malmsey 20 Anos NV (6x50cl)

Richard Mayson (18.5)

There isn’t much old Malmsey in stock. This wine is a blend of 7 vintages, the oldest of which is from 1979. Old mahogany in hue; lovely high-toned aromas, rich, demerara character, dried fig and hint of bolo de mel (honey cake); dried figs, apricots and raisins on the palate, lovely richness and depth, suave yet fresh too with a herbaceous edge, contrasting flavours beautifully melded together on the palate, bitter-sweet candied fruit finish. Greater than the sum of its parts: this has real poise. 2000 bottles in total.

Blandys Madeira Colheita Sercial Single Harvest 2008 (6x50cl)

Richard Mayson (18)

Made from grapes grown at Pomar Novo in Jardim da Serra at a relatively high altitude (400m) on the south side of the island: pale orange-amber; delicate ginger, all-spice with a hint of toffee on the nose; very dry in style (just 40g/l residual sugar), green tea character with the merest trace of butterscotch mid-palate and a long, leafy filigree finish. Dry but very gentle in style. There are 2000 bottles of this but more has been kept back to bottle as a frasqueira (vintage).
