Sandeman Sherry Royal Ambrosante Pedro Ximénez 20 Years Old from a Solera established in 1894 is one of Sandeman´s Rare wines. Its intense flavour combines lush, ripe fruit and age, epitomising the style of Sandeman Sherries.

A wine with a dark, opaque mahogany colour, Sandeman Sherry Royal Ambrosante Pedro Ximénez 20 Years Old has an intensely fragrant aroma. Full and vigorous in the mouth, it is both smooth and sweet, combining lush ripe fruit and age in a perfect balance. The intense raisin flavours are complex with a very long concentrated finish.

The juice pressed from the raisined grapes to make this wine is intensely sweet and concentrated, meaning that the yeasts cannot complete fermentation. The resulting wine is treacle-sweet prior to fortification with grape spirit. This luscious PX is aged in a Solera system in Jerez which was first established in 1894. The final wine has an average age of 20 years.

Sandeman Sherry Royal Ambrosante Pedro Ximénez 20 Years Old is ready to drink and does not require decanting. Serve chilled, between 10ºC-12ºC. Once open, it will remain fresh for up to 8 weeks.

Sandeman Sherry Royal Ambrosante Pedro Ximénez 20 Years Old is an ideal partner to full rich dark chocolate or mocca desserts, dry fruit cakes or intense vanilla ice cream.

Country Of Origin: Spain

The House of Sandeman was founded in London in 1790 by George Sandeman, a young Scot from Perth. Specialising in wines from Porto and Jerez, Sandeman was the first company to brand its name on a cask with a hot iron in 1805 and was one of the first to label and advertise its wines. The ‘Sandeman Don’ is one of the world's first ever brand images and the first major icon in the wine world, painted in 1928 by George Massiot Brown. The cape was modelled on the attire worn by university students in Porto, while the wide-brimmed hat was a nod to the family’s presence in Jerez. Although the brand is primarily associated with Port wines, they have been fully committed to sherry since George Sandeman first set up an office in Cádiz in 1809. Today, Sandeman concentrates its efforts in Jerez on the production of a handful of premium quality old solera sherries which have become known as masterpieces of the style.

For this wine, The majority of PX grapes come not from Jerez, but from the nearby Montilla-Moriles region, which is hotter and less humid. This is largely because grapes destined for sweet PX wines are raisined in the sun before they are vinified. If they were left to raisin in the humid conditions of Jerez, there would be a much greater threat of rot. The evaporation of water from the grapes concentrates the sugars, acids and flavours, leaving very sweet raisins with a low water content.
