Description

In 1887 the owners of Sanchez 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 Cardenal Mendoza. This name pays tribute to Pedro Gonzalez 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, winey aromas. Long, warm and balanced on 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 Clasico, 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 Ximenez sherry, make up one of the largest Solera Gran Reserva ageing cellars – a guarantee of this brandy’s age and quality.

Appearance: Dark mahogany, luminous, transparent, gleaming. Aroma: Round, clean, elegant, reminders of wine, distinguished, with hints of raisins and plums. Taste: Well-balanced, smooth, perfectly rounded, with traces of old mahogany.

Sweet and spicy aromas of dried figs, nutmeg, mace, and roasted chestnuts. The palate is figgy and nutty, with nicely balanced sweetness and spiciness. The texture is rich and thick. Long lasting flavors of spices, raisins and pecans.
