|BLANDY'S 'DUKE OF CLARENCE' RICH MADEIRA Madeira
|Vintage Assessments Tasting Note
||Madeira Wine Co.
|Deep brown colour. Slightly hot, sweet caramel nose. Very sweet, tangy, medium bodied, slightly raisiny, baked plum flavours with lingering, lemon peel acidity on the finish.
||Fortified Wine - Madeira
Raisin, Caramel & Lemon
||A Vintage Assessments Explorer's Selection!
|Made with the Tinta Negra Mole (TNM) grape, the mostly commonly planted vinifera vine on Madeira. TNM makes excellent Madeiras especially those designed for early enjoyment, such as this 'Duke of Clarence'. Julie Arkel, of the Sunday Express, said about a bottling from 1999 "this tasty, well-priced, pudding all-rounder is softly sweet with nuances of honey and raisin. A great buy and a great taste." Since Blandy's aims to replicate the same flavours in each bottling, expect more of the same here. Enjoy with fruit cakes, soft cheeses or chocolate pudding.
