Bottle size: 50cl
Out of stock
Clear and bright topaz colour, with a golden hue right up to the rim. Fresh and fragrant bouquet of dried fruits and spice with luxurious warm orangey aromas. Medium dry and full- bodied. Concentrated and fresh with a pleasant zesty bittersweet edge from a finally balanced acidity. Long lingering aftertaste of exotic fruits with spicy overtones.
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. This dry style of Madeira is made from 100% Verdelho 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.
Blandy's 10 year old Verdelho 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.
Reviews: “Dry, bitter almonds. Lovely balancing acidity and hazelnuts on the finish, which is long and satisfying.” IWSC 2004.
