Blandy's Sercial 1910

19.0 / 20
Producer: Blandy's
Region: Madeira
Country: Portugal

Light amber to the eye, this 112 years old wine is a remarkable, amazingly fresh Madeira. Toast notes and dried prunes in the nose, along with toasted almonds and hazelnuts in a austere but very precise bouquet.

Nicely structured in the mouth - remarkable for its age - the usual dryness associated with Sercial is still there in vast amounts, along with a citrus, lemony acidity that give this wine an astonishing life. Toast notes and dried fruits fill the palate during the taste finishing in a very long, strong and lemony way.

This is another eternal Madeira, still young after a hundred years - an experience not to be missed.
