Rainwater is medium dry pale Madeira that is delicious taken chilled before meals but also goes well with dessert. It's elegant and refined bouquet has made it a universal favorite. 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
Supple and lush, with pear, apricot and baked apple flavors. Rich, buttery finish. Drink now through 2013. 200 cases imported.
The non-vintage Rainwater Medium Dry has an uncomplicated marmalade and wax resin nose. The palate is light and smooth, with the toffee component rounding out the finish. It is not as complex as Barbeito's Rainwater, but should offer pleasure if slightly chilled and served as an aperitif.
