A light, delicate madeira with clean fresh nutty flavours. Its dryness makes it an excellent aperitif wine.
Blandy's Duke of Sussex was transferred to 'estufa' tanks where the wine underwent a cyclic heating and cooling process between 45°C and 50°C 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.
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.
