Both the modern packaging and the new style of Alvada 5 Year Old Madeira have been designed with contemporary tastes in mind.
It is virtually unheard of for a Madeira wine to be blended from two of the classic grape varieties. But in order to provide something new for existing Madeira drinkers and to tempt new drinkers on board, Alvada combines Malmsey for its classic richness and Bual for its subtle dry fruit and apricot notes.
The result? Alvada retains the rich opulence of traditional Madeira yet lifts it with a fresh twist. The contemporary palate confirms the first impressions of the stylish, new packaging.
|For 200 years, Blandy’s Madeira has been synonymous with quality Madeira wine.
The Blandys are unique in being the only family of all the original founders of the Madeira wine trade to still own and manage their own original wine company. The family has played a leading role in the development of Madeira wine throughout its long history and members of the family continue to live on Madeira, maintaining a tradition that goes back to 1811.
Michael and Chris Blandy are the 6th and 7th generations to work in the business.
