Combining different wines together, we try to have a final wine with high quality. Blending helps to balance the wine, to add layers of flavors and better integrate the sugars and acids. Blending allows us to select the best characteristics of different wines and then mix them all together to create a much better flavor profile, maintaining the consistence of quality and, off course, reduce the negative impacts, if any, that some harvest years may present. The Broadbent 10 Years Old Boal Madeira is a satisfying fortified wine exhibiting flavors of caramel, toasted nuts, and toffee. This wine should pair well with aged hard cheeses.
