If you’re opting for a fish starter this year, you cannot go wrong with a big splash of this to accompany. Blandy’s 10 Year Old Sercial is a deceivingly pale wine that is crammed full of complex flavours; bitter almonds and hazelnuts combine with vibrant refreshing acidity in a life-affirming way. The good news with this fortified friend is that once it’s open you can keep it going for a good few months thereafter…if it lasts that long once you’ve tasted it.
“Dry, bitter almonds. Lovely balancing acidity and hazelnuts on the finish, which is long and satisfying.” – IWSC
