Colheita Bual 2003
Blandy's Colheita Bual 2003
The 2003 harvest was an unusually dry one, experiencing just one day of rain in August and not a single drop more until October. For this reason it is widely considered to have been an exceptional year. It proved to be especially propitious for Bual, with a large production of the grape. Overall, 2003 was considered to have been excellent for the varietal.
Blandy’s Colheita Bual 2003 was aged for 13 years in seasoned American oak casks and as with all the family’s vintages, this wine started its ageing process in the warm high attic floors of the lodge in the centre of Funchal.
Golden colour with green reflections. Characteristic bouquet of Madeira with exotic wood, dry fruits, dates, vanilla and cacao. Medium sweet and full bodied, with a long, fresh aftertaste of vanilla and toffee.
