Winemaker's Notes

To mark the bi-centenary of Blandy's Madeira in 2011, we decided to bottle this special, limited and numbered edition of Blandy's Bual 1920 in a Magnum bottle. This Vintage Bual aged for 65 years in seasoned American oak casks. A fresh, medium-sweet wine with an intense, exuberant and concentrated bouquet of dried fruits, hints of toffee and a spicy and tobacco aftertaste.
