Blandy's Listrao Madeira 1977

Blandy's Listrao Madeira 1977

The grapes were harvested by hand in the 1977 harvest, in the William Leacock vineyards, in one of the last, if not the last, harvests done in this property - Quinta do Ribeiro Salgado. They were then transported on a long boat trip to the island of Madeira, where they were aged in the centuries-old Blandy’s Wine Lodges. The small island of Porto Santo is of volcanic origin, but very different from Madeira. The island has very few trees, the soils are arid, sandy, and have clay soils with aluminum silicates, making it a very unique terroir . The vines are planted close to the ground and surrounded by “crochet” walls, which protect them from the wind and the sea breeze, resulting in wines that are sweeter and have less acidity. It is a very rare wine and the last of the Listrão stock of the company.

Bright, crystalline, old gold color, with golden nuance. Characteristic distinct, complex and exuberant bouquet, where volatile aromas of brandy infused with spices, hazelnut and exotic woods stand out. Flavor is very fresh,volatile and intense with a long warm finish with spice and balsam.
