Blandy’s Colheita Bual 1991: today’s seasonal recommendation
Back in April, fortified wine geeks Danny Cameron and Ben Campbell-Johnson launched a new trade tasting, The Big Fortified Tasting which, I’m happy to say, is set to become an annual occurrence. Today’s seasonal recommendation was a stand out of the tasting and will challenge many a perception of Madeira. It’s a seriously mellow fellow:
Blandy’s Colheita Bual 1991 – smooth as, with rich, ripe, figgy dried fruit and cafe crème with spice; long, beautifully balanced and utterly engaging. What’s more, it’s listed by Slurp at £35/50cl bottle, so elegible for the Catavino 15% discount about which I blogged earlier today.
