Valdespino 'Isabela' Cream Sherry


750 ML


Product Description

Darkest mahogany in color, this classic Cream Oloroso is strikingly sweet, displaying a mix of dried fruits, spicy oak and macerated raisin aromas. A blend of 75% Palomino with 25% PX, a richly balanced palate deftly combines caramel toffee sweetness with fresh saline tinged acidity. This wine aged over 15 years in Solera. Ideal for sipping on its own, also try with Cabrales, slow roasted sweet pork and bacon desserts.

Region Description:

Jerez is one of the oldest wine producing towns in Spain. Around 1490 trade had been established with the French and the British. The French and British adopted their own names for the wine which is why you will see all three names one a label of Xeres. (Jerez / Xerez /Sherry) The global positioning of the Jerez region plays a big part in regulating its climate. Like many semi-coastal regions, the ocean winds have a strong influence on the weather. In the 1800's, a vine disease called Phyloxerra destroyed many varieties that once grew in this region. Of the three grapes planted in Jerez today, Palimino accounts for 95 percent of the total vineyard area.
