Blandy's Sercial Madeira Wine 1968 Gift Box (750ml)
Aperitif nose: fine, lifted slightly smoky, savoury.
Mid-deep amber in hue with an olive green glint on the rim; dry (but not austere) with rapier-like power and intensity, a streak of acidity leading to a mouthwateringly fresh greengage finish yielding to a touch of savoury complexity. Very pure expression of Sercial with a freshness that belies nearly 50 years in cask.
Slightly smoky, savoury, acid finish. Fine and dry.
Price by bottle. 6 bottles are one box.
