Quick Overview

Lovely golden-chestnut color with a fine golden rim. Characteristic nose with a classic Madeira bouquet of dried fruits, toffee and hints of oak and spices. Sweet, very rich, smooth on the palate and full-bodied, balanced by a very fine acidity. A long aftertaste with notes of honey and spicy oak.
Blandy's Alvada Madeira

Details

The Blandy family founded their winery in 1811 and in 1925 formed the original Madeira Wine Association in partnership with Leacock’s Madeira. In 1989, the Symington family, renowned fourth generation Port producers, entered a partnership with the Blandys in what had then become the Madeira Wine Company, which also represents Cossart Gordon, Leacock’s and Miles. Over the last 15 years, the Symingtons have used their winemaking experience, dedication to reinvestment in the vineyards and winery, and worldwide distribution network to revitalize the Madeira trade. Fermentation off the skins with natural yeast at temperatures between 18°C - 21°C, in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks; fortification with grape brandy after approximately 48 hours, arresting fermentation at the desired degree of sweetness. Blandy’s Alvada was aged for five years in seasoned American oak casks using the traditional “Canteiro” system. In the process the wine is gently heated by warm air in the lofts of the company’s south facing lodge in Funchal. Over the years the casks are transferred from the top floor to the middle floor and eventually to the ground floor where it is cooler. The wine then underwent racking and fining before the blend was assembled and bottled.
