Tasting Notes

Cream sherry is a sweet style, based on a blend of the region's classic grapes. This one is a notch up in quality, with flavors of caramel evolving nicely into lightly dried apricots. A persistent finish rounds off the experience. Take a nip during afternoon tea or savor it as an after-dinner treat with tarte tatin.

Many of the best examples come from the region of Montilla, and are thus not technically classified as Sherries. PX’s are intensely, almost syrupy sweet, and are ideal drizzled over vanilla ice cream (or over...

Palomino

Accounting for over 90% of the vine plantings in Jerez, this relatively neutral grape provides the ideal “blank canvas” for the creation of fabulously complex Sherries (much like the Ugni Blanc grape does in Cognac).

Cream Sherry

A slight misnomer (as these Sherries are indeed not creamy), Cream Sherry refers to the sweet, dessert style of Sherry that is made by adding Pedro Ximénez wine to Oloroso Sherry prior to bottling. The resultant Sherry is invariably smooth and sweet, yet it possesses enough acidity to preserve a sense of balance. These Sherries are a good alternative to the straight PX’s if you’re craving...
