It has been bottled when ready for drinking and will keep for several months after opening. Blandys Alvada underwent fermentation off the skins with natural yeast at temperatures between 18°C - 21°C in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After approximately 48 hours, fortification with grape brandy takes place, arresting fermentation at the desired degree of sweetness.Blandy's Alvada was aged for 5 years in American oak casks in the traditional 'Canteiro' system.
