Blandys 20 Year Old Terrantez Madeira is made by Blandy’s, one of the most famous and oldest suppliers of quality Madeira. It is made from Terrantez, one of the rare grape varieties grown on the island of Madeira.
For 200 years, Blandys Madeira has been synonymous with quality Madeira wine. The Blandy family has played a leading role in the development of Madeira wine throughout its long history and members of the family continue to live on Madeira, maintaining a tradition that goes back to 1811. Today Blandys Madeira is owned by the Symington Family Estates (owners of Port Houses Dow, Warre, Graham and Cockburn amongst others).
Blandys 2002 Bual Colheita Madeira is a blend of wines with an average of 20 years in seasoned American oak casks. The wines were aged at the family’s Lodge in Funchal in the traditional ‘Canteiro’ system, whereby the wine is gradually transferred from the higher floors where the temperatures are higher, to the middle floors and eventually to the ground floor where temperatures are cooler. The process of transferring the barrels is absolutely critical to ensure the right balance of ullage and concentration. All through the ageing process, the primary fruit flavours of the wine are gently transformed into tertiary dried fruit notes that produce unique Madeira hallmark bouquet.
Blandys 20 Year Old Terrantez Madeira is 100% Terrantez and is made in a medium dry style. It is presented in a 50cl bottle in an individual box.
