Overview of the Wine
Blandy’s distinguishes itself for being the only family, of all the original founders of the Madeira wine trade, which still owns and manages its own original wine company. Throughout its long history on the island, the family has played a leading role in the development of Madeira Wine. The family continues to live in Madeira, thus maintaining a tradition that dates back to 1811 - two centuries and seven generations producing excellent wines.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Clear and bright topaz colour, with a golden hue right up to the rim. Fresh and fragrant bouquet of dried fruits and spice with luxurious warm orangey aromas. Medium dry and full- bodied. Concentrated and fresh with a pleasant zesty bittersweet edge from a finely balanced acidity. Long lingering aftertaste of exotic fruits with spicy overtones.
90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Bottled in 2015, Non Vintage Verdelho 10 Year Old has a delineated, vivacious bouquet with dried quince, orange peel and a touch of sea water, perhaps demonstrating wider appeal than its uncompromising Sercial counterpart. The palate is medium-bodied with a pleasant honeyed texture on the entry, very well judged acidity, those oxidative/nutty notes neatly counterbalancing the sweetness and viscosity towards the finish with some aplomb. This is endowed with impressive length and harmony here, to wit, a perfect introduction to the delights of Verdelho.
90 Points - Wine Spectator
Features good cut to the dried pear and melon flavors, complemented by notes of melted butter. Well-spiced on the fresh, minerally finish, showing some savory accents. Drink now through 2020.
