Blandy’ s 10 Year Old Sercial Pale is a bright topaz colour with a golden tinge, fresh with dry fruit, wood and citrus flavours with a fresh and nutty persistent finish.
Blandy’ s 10 Year Old Sercial was 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 underwent regular racking before finally being bottled.
It is excellent as an aperitif but is also exceedingly good with dried fruits and spicy cheeses. It has been bottled when ready for drinking and will keep for several months after opening.
