A cream sherry.
Smooth and sweet. Notably silky, well-balanced and elegant.
Reminders of well-ripened fruit, spices and fine wood.
Average age of these rare Old Solera sherries is approximately 30 years, 20 aged as vintage sherry and 10 in the "solera" system. All the grapes are from vineyards owned by Gonzalez Byass in the "Jerez Superior" area.
Serve fresh but not cold, optimum temperature: 16 degrees C.
Serve in the traditional sherry glass to half capacity, to fully appreciate its superb fragance and intense bouquet acquired in the silence and shade of our cellars, throughout the long years.
Especilly indicated as accompaniment to a good Iberian ham, cheese, almonds, olives, etc.It is the ideal midmorning aperitif. It is also excellent with dry fruits or cookies.
The sweet wines are superlative dessert wines.
