Blandys Vintage Bual 1920 is a single harvest Madeira. This wine was aged for 65 years in seasoned American oak casks in the traditional Canteiro system, whereby the casks were gradually transferred from the top floors of the lodge, where it is naturally warmer, to the middle floors and eventually to the ground floor where it is cooler. The wine was regularly racked and when it reached the desired stage of maturity it was bottled. Only 2,480 bottles of this wine were released.
Golden colour with golden green tinges at the rim. Intense, exuberant and concentrated bouquet of dried fruits with an aroma of licorice. Notes of wood, toffee and vanilla. Luxurious long finish of dried fruits, spices and tobacco.
