Brandy ‘Cardenal Mendoza’ Clásico - Solera Gran Reserva (700 ml)
In 1887 the owners of ‘Sánchez Romate Hermanos’ began to make a unique, different Brandy for their own consumption. The quality soon earned increasing fame and the winery decided to market it with the name of ‘Cardenal Mendoza’.
This name pays tribute to Pedro González de Mendoza (1423 - 1495), a historical figure who played a crucial role in the conquest of the Muslim Kingdom of Granada and especially in the discovery of America, as he interceded on behalf of Christopher Columbus’ project before the Catholic Monarchs.
Bright, transparent, of dark mahogany colours. Round, clean, elegant, with winey aromas. Long, warm and balanced in the mouth, with no harsh edges. With personality, a harmony of subtle flavours and an intense finish of raisins and plums.
This is ‘Cardenal Mendoza Clásico’, a ‘Solera Gran Reserva’ Brandy, made from a selection of the finest distilled holandas, or wine spirits, which are aged using the traditional ‘steps-and-ladders’ system. The casks used to age ‘Cardenal Mendoza’, which are previously treated with Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherry, make up one of the largest Solera Gran Reserva ageing cellars... a guarantee of this brandy’s age and quality.
