      Winemaker 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.
      Original Wooden Case (OWC) may ship in a separate box from the wine.

      Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
      "...dried honey, molasses, quince and walnut all intermingling. The palate is well-balanced with very fine acidity, delicate and feminine with notes of orange peel, quince, a hint of ginger but very focus towards the long, almost sensual finish. This is one of the best bottles I have encountered."

      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.
