1958 Blandy’s Vintage Bual Madeira
Another fantastic 60th Birthday idea from the French Wine People this time featuring the exquisite fortified wines of Blandy’s in Madeira great for anyone born in 1958.
Blandy’s Vintage Bual 1958 is a single harvest Madeira. This wine was aged for 44 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 1,490 bottles of this wine were released.
Comes presented in a silk lined wooden box.
Deep dark brown colour with golden reflections. Characteristic and complex
bouquet of Madeira with spices, toffee and vanilla and notes of tropical fruit.
Smooth, medium sweet and full bodied on the palate. Perfect balance
between richness and acidity. A very long and persistent finish with orange
peel, coffee and spices.
