Saturated with green olive flavors and searingly correct in its acidity, this sercial’s structure has the warm burn of sun on sand. Notes of wildflowers meet nutty tannins, combining in a slightly brash finish, which is more about textural detail than aroma or flavor. Pour it with blanquette de veau, adding a splash of this to the sauce.
The ten year-old Sercial from Henriques & Henriques is an excellent example, offering up a bright and very refined nose of lemon peel, fresh apricot, sea salts, pain épice, a touch of green olive and a lovely, smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and very suave in its balance, with fine mid-palate concentration, tangy acids and fine complexity and grip on the long finish. This is a very high class bottle for its ten year-old level. (Drink between 2014-2055)
Apricot colour. Tangy, crisp and dry. Good quality for the price. (JH)
