Winemaker's Notes:

Sandeman Character Medium Dry is a premium quality Amontillado Sherry, aged 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 Ximenez Sherry is blended in to make a dry and complex wine with a touch of sweetness.

Aromatic and complex on the nose, slightly pungent, with notes of Pedro Ximenez. 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.

A traditional match to soups, Sandeman Character Medium Dry Amontillado is a good accompaniment to pâtés , smoked meats, rich seafood dishes and some cheeses. Well chilled it is excellent as an aperitif.

Once open Sandeman Character Medium Dry Amontillado will remain fresh for up to 4 - 8 weeks.

About Sandeman:

The House of Sandeman was founded in London in 1790 by George Sandeman, a determined young Scotsman. From a modest start two hundred years ago as a wine merchant in the City of London, to today's impressive lodges in Oporto and bodegas in Jerez, and the world's best known brand of Port and Sherry, there has been a continuous commitment to quality. The growth of Sandeman Port and Sherries over two centuries has been based on a balance of tradition and innovation, respecting heritage but always seeking improvement. In 1980, Sandeman became part of Seagram; today, as the seventh generation of the family and Chairman of the old firm, George Sandeman continues the Sandeman commitment to the quality of Sandeman Ports and Sherries, and to the future.
