Janci Robinson May 2012 17/20 Sercial is the lightest and driest and along with great Fino or Manzanilla is one of the most energising, appetising drinks in the world. Sercial and Barbeito seem like a marriage made in heaven and indeed Barbeito 10 Year-Old Secial tastes heavenly. Peachy pale tawny. Racy with that wonderful purity and acidity yet heady and with massive depth of fruit. Tense, serious complex A marvel really. Only just off-dry this would make a fabulous aperitif. I gave it a possibly characteristically stingy 17 points out of 20.'
