Vinification
Various quality vineyards at Porto Moniz, Seixal and Camara de Lobos at altitudes of up to 500m.
 
Blandy's 5 year old dry Sercial underwent fermentation off the skins with natural yeast at temperatures between 18°C - 21°C in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After approximately 5-6 days, fortification with grape brandy takes place, arresting fermentation at the desired degree of sweetness.
Blandy's 5 year old Sercial was aged in American oak casks in the traditional 'Canteiro' system. This comprises of the gentle heating of the wine in the lofts of the lodges in Funchal. Over the years the wine is transferred from the top floors to the middle floors and eventually to the ground floor where it is cooler. After this gradual 'estufagem' the wine underwent racking and fining before the blend was assembled and bottled.
