Tasting Notes"The Blandy’s 2010 Colheita Single Harvest Bual has 92g/L residual sugar and was aged for ten years in old oak casks. Despite encouragement, this is quite straight-laced on the nose and doesn’t feel the need to “come out and play.” The palate is mellifluous on the entry with a lovely texture, very smooth with judicious lemongrass and stem ginger that combine nicely with the marmalade and Clementine notes, but this is just a bit short on the finish. Fine. 2,933 bottles produced. 88 points" Neal Martin,Vinous.com------"Grapes from Calheta on the warmer south coast of Madeira: mid-amber with gently smoked, yet rich savoury-spicy aromas, quite seductive and evocative; lovely Elvas plum and quince marmalade richness (92 g/l residual sugar) with a spicy backdrop, balanced by fresh appley acidity and a long finish akin to a gently cinnamon-spiced Tarte Tatin. There is no substitute for age in Madeira but this shows great complexity for a colheita with a decade in wood. 18.5/20 points." Richard Mayson

Tasting Notes"The Blandy’s 2010 Colheita Single Harvest Malmsey was aged for ten years in old oak casks and contains 112g/L residual sugar. It just doesn’t quite do it for me on the nose, missing a bit of presence and cohesion, somehow a bit ephemeral, which is not what I seek from a Malmsey. The palate is well balanced with modest weight, though it attenuates a little on the finish. I prefer the drier styles this year. 2,933 bottles produced. 86 points" Neal Martin,Vinous.com------"From São Jorge, the source of most Malvasia on the north side of the island: mid-deep amber with a gentle, slightly casky, dried fig character and a hint of malt whisky on the nose; dried fruit richness (dates and raisins) with some gently curried spice, the acidity cutting through and rising to leave a sweet yet mouth-watering finish. 17/20 points." Richard Mayson

Tasting Notes"The 2010 Blandy’s Colheita Single Harvest Sercial contains 50g/L residual sugar and is limited to 2,828 bottles for their 2023 release. The mellowness on the nose is endearing, with dried honey commingling with burnt apricot and linseed oil notes. The palate has a potent line of acidity, bitter lemon intermixed with orange rind, marmalade and stem ginger. It needs a bit more cohesion to bind it together on the finish. A bit uncompromising, chill this right down to serve as an aperitif with grilled nuts or even a strong blue cheese. 20% alcohol. 88 points" Neal Martin,Vinous.com------"Grapes from Seixal on the cool north coast of the island: mid-amber colour with gently toasted spiced walnut aromas and a hint of leather; wonderfully incisive crisp, savoury flavours, seemingly dry (50g/l) residual sugar with 8.3 g/l total acidity) with a hint of sultana and crystalised fruit on a long, racy yet delicate finish. 16.5/20 points."

Tasting Notes"The 2010 Blandy’s Colheita Single Harvest Verdelho was aged for ten years in very old oak casks and contains 75g/L residual sugar. The nose offers dried peach skin, melted candle wax and wood varnish scents, well-defined and demonstrating a little more focus than its Sercial counterpart. The palate is superb. Seamlessly constructed with a pitch-perfect line of acidity, this just feels complete and effortless. This Verdelho comes highly recommended with gorgeous mandarin, dried honey, hazelnut notes and a slight oxidative edge on the finish. 2,523 bottles produced. 94 points" Neal Martin,Vinous.com------"Grapes from Porto Moniz on the north west corner of the island: mid-deep amber with a green glint; lovely lifted savoury-leathery aromas with a hint of dried apricots and raisins, very appetising; delicate leafy, greengage fruit, some richness (75g/l residual sugar) offset by zesty acidity which persists onto a long mouth-watering finish. Really lovely poise for a relatively young wine. 18/20 points." Richard Mayson------"Verdelho always tastes like the cello to Sercial's violin. Although the wine smells of wet, newly planed oak and crushed coriander seeds and dried sage, it tastes of sweet pickled ginger root and rosemary in orange syrup. Like the Sercial, there is an explosion of black pepper on the finish, but here it comes with satin ribbons of sour-cherry fruit with a deep, coppery glow. Tastes like midsummer sunrise. 17.5 points" jancisrobinson.com (TC)
