Tasting Notes

Clear and bright coppery brown color with golden nuances and greenish reflections. On the nose it´s very characteristic, exuberant and very ethereal, full of balsamic notes, spices and dry fruits. On the palate it´s very powerful, fresh and concentrated with a long aftertaste and retro-nasal full of balsamic notes, exotic woods and old rum.

Production Notes

Blandy’s Verdelho 1976 was aged for 44 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 center of Funchal. Over the 44 years, the wine passed down from the warmer top floor of the Blandy’s Wine Lodges where it spent the first 5 years, to the second floor and finally to the cooler floor. The art of finding the right balance between concentration and the freshness of the wine lies in the winemaker’s decision when to transfer the wine to the lower cooler north facing floors of the lodge.
