Aged for 5 Years using Canteiro method. Malmsey is possibly the most well-known of the noble varieties, the grape has high levels of both sugar and acidity. The Malmsey or Malvasia grape is found predominately in the region of São Jorge on the north of the island Medium dark to dark, a luscious rich soft- textured wine, distinctly full honeyed and mellow. Ferments for approximately 48 hours before fortification with grape brandy. Clear, amber color with tinges of gold; a bouquet of dried fruit, vanilla, wood and toffee with a smooth, medium-sweet finish and an excellent balance between the fruit and acidity.

Wine SpectatorFresh and pure-tasting, with plenty of creaminess to the dried apricot, citrus peel and butterscotch flavors. Presents an unctuously spicy finish, powered by rich minerality. Drink now through 2045.

Wine AdvocateThe non-vintage 5-Year-Old Malmsey has a more oxidative nose than expected and ,like the Bual, there is too much volatility shrouding the aromatics. The palate is light for a Malmsey, with a pleasant tangy marmalade entry complemented by Clementine and quince. The finish is nicely composed and pure.

Neal Martin, August 2012
