Blandy's Alvada is the only blended Madeira available and is a 50-50 blend of the Bual and Malmsey grapes. It combines the lush, nutty tropical flavors of Bual with the rich, molasses-like flavors of Malmsey. Alvada has a long, lingering and bright finish.
Serving and pairing suggestions
Alvada is bottled ready to drink after an average of at least five years of cask aging. It has a t-cap closure, which means that you don't need a corkscrew to open it and that it will stay fresh for many months if stored in a cool, dark place or refrigerator. Serve it in a glass with at least a six ounce capacity so that you may appreciate the wine's aromas. Alvada is delicious with nutty desserts like almond cake or pecan pie and anything made with rich chocolate and will be a guaranteed show-stopper at your next dinner party! In warmer months, try it chilled for a refreshing dessert in a glass.
