Blandy`s Sercial Half 1968
The Blandy family has played a leading role in the development of Madeira wine and continues to maintain a tradition of fine wine production that dates back two centuries. This is a rare release of single-harvest Madeira produced in 1968 from 100% Sercial and bottled in 2017 with 59g/L residual sugar having matured for 49 years in seasoned American oak casks in the traditional ‘Canteiro’ system. Mid-amber in hue with olive green hints at the rim, this is a seriously complex, powerful and intense wine with notes of citrus marmalade, dried fruits, grilled nuts and woody spices. Medium-bodied, bright and with mouthwatering acidity, this is a wonderfully vibrant expression of aged Sercial.
