Blandy's has thrown away the rule-book to create a striking new Madeira.
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.
