Blandy`s Sercial Half 1980
The Blandy’s 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, maintaining a tradition that goes back to 1811. This is a strictly limited release of single-harvest Madeira produced in 1980 from 100% Sercial and bottled in 2016 having matured for 36 years in seasoned American oak casks in the traditional ‘Canteiro’ system. This is a delightful wine with notes of citrus marmalade, apple peel, toffee, bitter nuts and an interesting saline hint. Vibrant and fresh on the palate, with characteristic high acidity, it is nicely balanced with 55g/L of residual sugar.
