Sandeman Sherry Character Superior Medium Dry (500 ml)
Overview: It all started in 1790 when the 25-year-old son of a Scottish prosperous cabinetmaker asked for a 300£ loan from his father to set up as a wine merchant in London. This ambitious young man was George Sandeman, the founder of Sandeman, who ended up establishing one of the world’s leading Port and Sherry wine businesses.
From early on Sandeman specialised in these two great Iberian fortified wines and, following a usual practice in those days, began trading not from own offices but from Tom’s Coffee house, on Birchin Lane, London. Business was agreed on a ‘gentleman’s word’ and George soon gained an impeccable reputation, characteristic of The House of Sandeman to today.
Sandeman Sherry Character Superior Medium Dry is a premium quality Amontillado Sherry, aged for an average of nine years in small casks where the pale wines slowly evolve into medium gold amber colours and flavours of subtle complexity develop. Later a small amount of rich Pedro Ximénez Sherry is blended in to make a dry and complex wine with a touch of sweetness.
Tasting Notes: Aromatic and complex on the nose, slightly pungent, with notes of Pedro Ximénez. Medium golden in colour with hints of red amber. Very harmonious on the palate, with an agreeable touch of sweetness at the first moment, giving way to a nutty complexity and a long clean finish
Pairing: Banoffee pie
