Zuleta Cream SherryRegular price £13.50
If your experience of Cream Sherry goes no further than Harveys Bristol (not even in Spain last time I looked…) Cream then you really must forget what you know.
This wine is a blend between house young Amontillado and Oloroso wines and those from dried grapes, such as Pedro Ximenez and Muscat.
This wine, which undergoes oxidative ageing, is made of the Palomino, Muscat and Pedro Ximénez varieties. It is aged approximately 5 years through the process of "Soleras and Criaderas" in American oak casks. It is sweet and its alcohol content is 17.5%.
With a mahogany colour, it shows intense and very complex aromas, with hints of dried grapes (raisins, dried figs, dried apricots), hardwood and caramel. It is very soft and sweet, balanced, long and lingering in the mouth. Perfect to enjoy as an aperitif or dessert.
It is an essential wine at home, because it goes perfectly as an aperitif and/or dessert and as accompaniment of fruit, cheese or pâté. This wine serves to make the fashionable drink: cream, ice and a slice of orange.
