Winemaker's Notes:

Royal Corregidor Rich Old Oloroso (20 Years), from a Solera established in 1894, is one of Sandeman's Rare wines. Very intense, it combines the complexity of old Oloroso with the richness of Pedro Ximenez in a perfect balance, and epitomises the style of Sandeman Sherries.

Sandeman Royal Corregidor Rich Old Oloroso has an attractive mahogany colour and an appealing complex character with great depth. The intense nutty aromas typical of very old Olorosos are offset by notes of raisins. Extraordinarily rich on the palate, it combines the complexity of old Oloroso with the lush ripe fruit of Pedro Ximenez in a perfect balance. It has a rich, velvet feel in the mouth, recalling all of its aromatic complexity and stimulating the senses with a very long finish.

Sandeman Royal Corregidor Rich Old Oloroso is a perfect partner to bitter chocolate and mocha desserts or rich dried fruit cakes, in addition to gorgonzola or stilton cheese.

Once opened Sandeman Royal Corregidor Rich Old Oloroso remains 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.
