In 1805 Sandeman became the first port company to brand a cask with an iron brand, giving the wine a guarantee of quality. The Sandeman ‘brand’ was later registered as a trademark in 1877 making it one of the oldest in the world. The iconic figure of the Sandeman Don appeared on bottles in 1928, again one of the first such trademarks ever created.
Deep amber colour with aromas of dried fruits and nuts and yeasty, bready notes from the flor. A smooth and long finish.
An ideal accompaniment to cured meat and cheese, or a rocket and parmesan salad
