Description

Tasting Notes
Clear and bright coppery brown colour with golden nuances and greenish reflections. On the nose it´s very characteristic, exuberant and very ethereal, full of balsamic notes, spices and dry fruits. On the palate it´s very powerful, fresh and concentrated with a long aftertaste and retronasal full of balsamic notes, exotic woods and old rum.

In the 17th century Verdelho was considered the most representative variety in Madeira Island and some even say that may be originated from the island. Verdelho produces a wine must with moderated sugar levels, noticeable acidity and produces a mediumdry style of Madeira wine. Verdelho 1976, has the category of a Frasqueira. The Ageing – “Canteiro” process. The maturation occurred in the cellar of Blandy´s Wine Lodge, located Funchal city center. This balance, results from the winemaker´s decisions through the maturation process in which the wine, who ages in American oak casks in the warm attic floors of the lodge, is transferred to the lower cooler north facing floors of the lodge.
