Pale, bright topaz colour with a golden tinge, fresh with dry fruit, wood and citrus flavours with a fresh and nutty persistent finish.

Vineyards: Various quality vineyards including at Jardim da Serra on the south of the island at an altitude of 500 m.

Vinification: Blandy's 10 year old Dry Sercial underwent fermentation off the skins with natural yeast at temperatures between 18 degrees C - 21 degrees C in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After approximately 5 days, fortification with grape brandy takes place, arresting fermentation at the desired degree of sweetness.

Maturation: Blandy's 10 Y ear 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.

Specification: Alcohol: Alcohol: 19% ABV pH: 3.35 Residual Sugar: 49.6 g/l Total Acidity: 6.23 g/l tartaric acid.

Serving & Cellarage: Blandy's 10 year old Sercial is fined and does not require decanting. It is excellent as an aperitif but is also exceedingly good with flambees, dried fruits and spicy cheeses. It has been bottled when ready for drinking and will keep for several months after opening.
