Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Royal Esmeralda Fine Dry Amontillado (20 Years), from a Solera established in 1894, is one of Sandeman's Rare wines. Very intense, dry and round in the mouth it combines the complexity of age with the freshness of an expertly managed Solera, epitomising the style of Sandeman Sherries.

Sandeman Royal Esmeralda Fine Dry Amontillado has an attractive amber colour with golden highlights, opening onto a complex nose, where the pungent notes of the original fino have been gradually softened over the years, creating a deeper, more fragrant wine. On the palate it is clean and full, nutty, dry yet very smooth and light. Very complex with a long intense finish.

Sandeman Royal Esmeralda Fine Dry Amontillado is perfect on its own as an aperitif, or as a match to salty cheese and smoked meats.

Once opened Sandeman Royal Esmeralda Fine Dry Amontillado remains fresh for up to 4 - 8 weeks.

Critical Acclaim

"Quite the classic, with rich toffee and nut-like aromas that come through with piercing power. The briny palate is all about dried citrus and nuts, while the earthy, long finish has an unmistakable and very nice mushroom quality. This is a precise, somewhat reserved and dainty amontillado, but it’s structured and quite real as far as style and impact."
