BLANDYS 10YO SERCIAL 19%
Blandy’s 10 year old Sercial is a blend of wines with an average of 10 years in seasoned American oak casks. The wines were aged at the family’s Lodge in Funchal in the traditional ‘Canteiro’ system, whereby the wine is gradually transferred from the higher floors where the temperatures are higher, to the middle floors and eventually to the ground floor where temperatures are cooler. The process of transferring the barrels is absolutely critical to ensure the right balance of ullage and concentration.
All through the ageing process, the primary fruit flavours of the wine are gently transformed into tertiary dried fruit notes that produce unique Madeira hallmark bouquet.
This wine was regularly racked during this ageing process and was fined before bottling.
SERVING & CELLARAGE
Blandy's 10 year old Sercial is fined and does not require decanting. It is excellent served slightly chilled as an aperitif accompanied by roasted almonds, or the more adventurous can pair this wine with sashimi or oysters.
It has been bottled ready for drinking and will keep for several months after opening.
“Dry, bitter almonds. Lovely balancing acidity and hazelnuts on the finish, which is long and satisfying.” IWSC
