Details

The Blandy family founded their winery in 1811 and in 1925 formed the original Madeira Wine Association in partnership with Leacock’s Madeira. In 1989, the Symington family, renowned fourth generation Port producers, entered a partnership with the Blandys in what had then become the Madeira Wine Company, which also represents Cossart Gordon, Leacock’s and Miles. Over the last 15 years, the Symingtons have used their winemaking experience, dedication to reinvestment in the vineyards and winery, and worldwide distribution network to revitalize the Madeira trade. Fermentation off the skins with natural yeast at temperatures between 24°C - 26°C, in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks; fortification with grape brandy after approximately four days, arresting fermentation at the desired degree of sweetness. Blandy’s Rainwater was transferred to ‘estufa’ tanks where the wine underwent a cyclic heating and cooling process between 45°C - 50°C over a period of 3 months. After ‘estufagem’ the wine was aged for three years in American oak casks. The wine then underwent racking and fining before the blend was assembled and bottled.
