Topaz colour with amber reflections. Characteristic bouquet of Madeira with dried fruits, vanilla and oak. Medium sweet and full bodied, with a fresh aftertaste of vanilla and toffee.

Vinification: Blandy's Bual Colheita underwent fermentation off the skins with natural yeast at temperatures between 18 degrees C - 21 degrees C in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After approximately 3 days, fortification with grape brandy takes place, arresting fermentation at the desired degree of sweetness.

Maturation: Blandy's Colheita Bual 1991 was aged 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.

Specification: Alcohol by Volume: 19% Total Acidity: 7.5 g/l (tartaric acid) pH: 3.48 Baume (20oC): 3.3 Reducing Sugar: 94 g/l Volatile Acidity: 0.42 g/l.

Serving & Cellarage: Blandy's Colheita is fined and does not require decanting. It has been bottled when ready for drinking and will keep for several months after opening. It is a superb accompaniment to dessert dishes, especially fruit, cakes, rich chocolate puddings and cheeses.
