Food Pairings for Sandeman Character Sherry
Character Amontillado 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 PX 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 PX. 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, Character Amontillado is a good accompaniment to pâtés , smoked meats, rich seafood dishes and some cheeses. Well chilled it is excellent as an aperitif.
