BLANDYS 10YO BUAL 19% 50CL
Blandy’s 10 year old Bual a blend of wines with an average of 10 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.
This wine was regularly racked during this ageing process and was fined before bottling.
SERVING & CELLARAGE
Blandy's 10 year old Bual is fined and does not require decanting. It is a fine accompaniment to foie gras and cheeses such as aged gouda or blue cheese, but also pairs extremely well with nuts, dried fruits, and fruitcake and crème brûlée.
It has been bottled ready for drinking and will keep for several months after opening.
“Packed with aromas of raisins, butterscotch and vanilla. Mouth-filling concentrated flavours of maple syrup, figs, caramel and sugared walnuts. Sweet but with a streak of acid verve. Beautifully balanced with an endless finish and lovely complexity” (IWSC)
The non-vintage 10-Year-Old Bual has an elegant bouquet with notes of Seville orange marmalade, quince, beeswax, dried orange peel and cardamom. The palate is very well-balanced with subtle marmalade and spice notes on the entry. (erobertparker)
