Sandeman Sherry Character Superior Medium Dry

A Medium Dry Sherry

Sherry Wine

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

Winemaking

All Sherry wines come from the Sherry Triangle, a protected region in the south of Spain embracing Jerez de la Frontera, Sanlúcar de Barrameda e El Puerto de Santa María. Only vines with a lifespan of 30 years or more survive in such place, where temperatures routinely rise to 38°C (100°F). Vines grow in albariza ground, composed 80% of chalk, the best medium for grape-growing for Finos: the palest, lightest and driest of sherries.

Sherry Maturation NFF4D00 0
Maturation

Sherry wines delicate character comes from how it is aged in a partially-filled barrel, under a layer of mysterious yeast. This yeast is known as “Flor” and forms spontaneously on surface of wine. Flor protects the wine from air, imparting aroma and flavour. Hence, Sherry Fino is the world’s driest wine because it contains zero sugars. Mysteriously, Flor only grows in Sherry Triangle region.

Storage

Should be stored standing, avoid intense light and maintain a constant temperature of 10°C-20°C.
