Full-bodied with mahogany color, this Sherry is very rich, medium sweet with aromas of roasted hazel nuts and toffee. It shows nice acidity and finishes very clean, inviting another sip.
It has a depth of flavor and richness that makes it ideal for braising meat and game or for deglazing a pan for sauces. Try pairing it with roasted game birds or chicken, foie gras or with desserts such as almond or other nut-based cakes and cookies or creme brulee.
"Smooth and sweet, this rich white offers maple, burnt sugar, walnut, dried orange and prune flavors wrapped in a silky, delicate texture, with lively acidity to balance the moderate sweetness. Finishes with spicy notes that bring you back for another sip."
"Round and welcoming up front, with toffee, caramel and mocha aromas that are not too sharp. Feels smooth, with pure flavors of toasted nuts, caramel, cocoa dust, dried apricot and underripe peach. Complex and nutty on the finish, with a sweet aftertaste of chocolate and toffee. Best Buy."
Outstanding medium-dry Oloroso. Layered flavor profile of roasted nuts and caramel. Excellent as a dessert wine or stand-alone.
This is only the second sherry I've tried (the first was Alvear Pedro Ximinez 1927.) This still has a nice flavor and of course, it is much less expensive. It smells incredible and is slightly sweet (the Avlear was almost syrupy.)
