Tasting notes
Clear, amber colour with tinges of gold; a bouquet of dried fruit, vanilla, wood and toffee with a smooth, medium-sweet finish and an excellent balance between the fruit and acidity.

Wine maker notes
Blandy’s 5 year old Bual was aged in American oak casks in the traditional ’Canteiro’ system. This comprises of the gentle heating of the wine in the lofts of the lodges in Funchal. Over the years the wine is transferred from the top floors to the middle floors and eventually to the ground floor where it is cooler. After this gradual ’estufagem’ the wine underwent racking and fining before the blend was assembled and bottled.

Technical notes
Alcohol: 19% ABV pH: 3.4 Residual Sugar: 100 g/l Total Acidity: 6.3 g/l tartaric acid

Food pairing
Blandy’s 5 year old Bual is fined and does not require decanting. It is excellent as an after dinner drink and also very good with fruit, milk chocolate, cakes and hard cheeses. It has been bottled when ready for drinking and will keep for several months after opening.
