Broadbent Madeira Malmsey 10 year old
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
Pretty date, caramel and hazelnut husk notes meld nicely, showing good cut through the ginger- and toasted sesame-infused finish. Starts frankly sweet and ends with mouthwatering cut. Drink now. 2,500 cases made.
The NV Malmsey 10 Year Old wafts from the glass with a rich, figgy bouquet of dried dates, demerara sugar, pecans and sultanas. On the palate, it's full-bodied, sweet and fleshy, with an ample, voluptuous profile and a generous core of somewhat grapey fruit, concluding with a creditably intense, expansive finish. This is a lusty, pleasure-bent Malmsey.
The Madeira regulations say that 10-years old is the age of the youngest part of the blend. So this richly sweet Malmsey contains many older wines. These are shown in the old gold color, the proper citrus acidity and the dryness that goes with wood aging. At the end, though, the liquid honey flavors are dominant.
