About the Wine:
Golden color with green reflections. Characteristic bouquet of Madeira with exotic wood, dry fruits, dates, vanilla, cacau and fine toasted oak. Medium sweet and full bodied, with a long toffee and vanilla aftertaste

VINIFICATION
Blandy’s Bual Colheita 2002 underwent fermentation off the skins with natural yeast at temperatures between 18°C -21°C in temperature controlled tanks. After approximately 5 to 6 days, fortification with vinic alcohol takes place, arresting fermentation at the desired degree of sweetness.

MATURATION
Blandy’s Colheita Bual 2002 was aged for 12years in seasoned American oak casks in the traditional ‘Canteiro’ system, whereby 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 is regularly racked during the ageing process and is finally bottled when the desired balance of maturity is reached
