K&L Notes

By definition, Malmsey is the sweetest style of Madeira. Composed of Malvasia (from which the very British "Malmsey" nickname is derived), this is a quite particular and distinctive bottling of Malmsey different from the Blandy's 10 or others you might have tried. To cut to the chase, it is edgier, racier, drier. The legendary, late Michael Broadbent, one of the most famous wine tasters and auctioneers, is responsible for blending this wine, and clearly he was someone who preferred a jolt of acidity in his madeiras, even the typically unctuous, sweet Malmsey. Due to a shorter three month estufagem (the heating process employed to make madeira), at lower temperatures, this wine is not quite as sweet but still has a wonderful sugar and acid balance. A nose hinting at a room of seasoned fortified wine barrels, brown sugar and grapefruit peel, leads to an elegant palate, one that is simultaneously sweet and lively. Enjoy it after a meal on its own, accompanied by cookies, fruit pies, even dark chocolate desserts would likely pair quite nicely.
