Blandy's Sercial 1966

17.0 / 20
Producer: Blandy's
Region: Madeira
Country: Portugal

Bottled after aging for 38 years in oak, this Sercial from 1966 is a treat, with a sharp, penetrating bouquet filled with notes of toffee, burnt sugars and exotic woods.

Feeling very dry in the palate, with a slightly thin body, this has an amazing acidity. Lots of dried fruits notes fill the mouth during the taste, that finishes long and dry.

I felt the wine was bit too thin for my personal taste, since I tend to like more structured, fuller Madeiras. But this wine would probably shine when paired with food, although I'm not quite sure what woud be the ideal match.
