Blandy's Duke of Sussex was transferred to 'estufa' tanks where the wine underwent a cyclic heating and cooling process between 45C and 50C over a period of 3 months. After 'estufagem' the wine was aged for three years in American oak casks and then underwent racking and fining before the blend was assembled and bottled.
A light, delicate Madeira with clean fresh nutty flavours. Its dryness makes it an excellent aperitif wine.
SERVING & CELLARAGE
Blandy's Duke of Sussex is fined and does not require decanting. It is excellent as an aperitif but is also exceedingly good with creamy starters, fish dishes and Indian cuisine. It has been bottled when ready for drinking and will keep for several months after opening.
