    Winemaker Notes

    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.

    Critical Acclaim

    W&S 90
    Wine & Spirits

    A fresh, bright blend focused on malvasia and bual, Alvada offers clean, subtle notes of nuts, tangerines and honey. It’s a little sweet, but the overall impression is brisk, the wine ready for a nut tart.

    D 90
    Decanter

    Rich aromas of walnuts and creme caramel with pleasant honey and raisin characteristics. Soft and rich palate of coffee and chocolate, toasted nuts, cocoa beans and sweet dried figs leads to long warm rich finish.

    Blandy's
    John Blandy first set foot on Madeira in 1807. In 1989, the Symington family became partners with the Blandy family and is helping to reinvigorate the Madeira trade. Grapes are grown in volcanic soil and hand harvested due to steeply terraced cliffs. The resulting wines are highly acidic and were found by historical accident to benefit from being heated - a process that would destroy any other wine. Originally, Madeiras were heated by the sun, stored in casks on the decks of boats exploring the world during the 18th century. Today, Madeiras are heated in a process called “estufagem,” which gives them great concentration and an incredible capacity to age while retaining some of the vibrant acidity unique to these wines.
