Blandy's Duke of Clarence 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.
Deep golden brown colour with honey and raisins on the nose, rich full bodied and soft textured; a great after dinner drink.
SERVING & CELLARAGE
Blandy's Duke of Clarence is fined and does not require decanting. It is a superb accompaniment to dessert dishes, especially fruit, cakes, chocolate puddings and soft cheeses. It has been bottled when ready for drinking and will keep for several months after opening.
