Description

Blandys Madeira has been synonymous with quality Madeira wine for over 200 years. The Blandys are unique in being the only family of all the original founders of the Madeira wine trade to still own and manage their own original wine company. The family has played a leading role in the development of Madeira wine throughout its long history and members of the family continue to live on Madeira, maintaining a tradition that goes back to 1811.

Tasting Notes Dry, bitter almonds. Lovely balancing acidity and hazelnuts on the finish, which is long and satisfying.

This dry style of Madeira is made from 100% Sercial grapes sourced from various quality vineyards including at Jardim da Serra on the south of the island at an altitude of 500m. After fermentation, and the subsequent fortification. Blandy’s 10 Year Old Sercial is aged for 10 years in seasoned American oak casks in the traditional ‘Canteiro’ system, whereby the casks of this wine are gradually transferred from the top floors of the lodge, where it is naturally warmer, to the middle floors and eventually to the ground floor where it is cooler. During this totally natural ageing, the wine undergoes regular racking before finally being bottled.

Serving Tips & Storage Blandy's 10 year old Sercial is fined and does not require decanting. It is excellent as an aperitif but is also exceedingly good with flambées, dried fruits and spicy cheeses. It has been bottled when ready for drinking and will keep for several months after opening.
