Sandeman Character Superior Medium Dry Sherry

The Sandeman Character Superior Medium Dry is a premium quality Amontillado Sherry, aged for an average of nine years in small casks where the pale Palomino 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. Medium gold in colour with amber hints, the Character Superior is a complex sherry, with pronounced aromas which reflect each stage of the production process. Yeasty, bready notes from the flor yeast are complemented by oxidative nutty and dried fruit characters. The addition of Pedro Ximénez adds notes of raisins and treacle as well as a well-balanced sweetness. The finish is smooth and long, with lingering notes of roasted nuts.
