Blandy's Madeira 1976 Terrantez is a beautiful amber color, earthy with dried fruit and toasty nut aromas. Full bodied and smooth with caramel, citrus, and red fruit flavors wrapped in mouth watering acidity.
It has long been said that John Blandy, the founder of the family business, arrived in Madeira in 1807 aged twenty-three as a quartermaster to General Beresford, commander of the British garrison. Yet prolonged research among army lists yielded no mention of a John Blandy serving in Madeira. The truth was found instead by the Madeira wine lover and expert Emmanuel ‘Mannie’ Berk.
