Tasting notes
Rainwater is a medium dry pale Madeira that is delicious taken chilled before meals but also goes well with dessert. Its elegant and refined bouquet has made it a universal favourite.

Wine maker notes
VINIFICATION Blandy’s Rainwater underwent fermentation off the skins with natural yeast at between 24C - 26C C in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After approximately 4 days, fortification with grape brandy takes place, arresting fermentation at the desired degree of sweetness. MATURATION Blandy’s Rainwater was transferred to ’estufa’ tanks where the wine underwent a cyclic heating and cooling process between 45C and 50C 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.

Technical notes

Food pairing
Blandy’s Rainwater is fined and does not require decanting. It has been bottled when ready for drinking and will keep for several months after opening.
