The perfect

combination

arose

Of the 7 selected wines, Sandeman chose the final 5. Each wine has their own particular characteristics of sweetness, acidity, and aromas, producing this distinct "personality" in the final blend.

THE DON and Sandeman Veil have plenty in common. The bottle’s silhouette evokes images of the Don's cape and the crystal capsule reminds us of the unique sombrero hat.
