Blandys Vintage Bual 1977 is a single harvest Madeira. This wine was aged for 29 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 650 bottles of this wine were released.

Beautiful amber colour with a lighter yellow rim. Intense citrus aromas on the nose backed by warming spices of cinnamon and touches of vanilla. Full long mouthfeel with hints of dried apricot, lemon peel and vanilla that build in the mouth and linger on. An absolute beauty. IWSC, June 2008
