Barbadillo Cream Sherry
WHY WE LOVE IT
- Cream sherry is the general name for different kinds of sweetened sherries, in this case, produced by blending a dry wine, Amontillado, with naturally sweet Pedro Ximenez
Varietal Composition: Palomino Fina, Pedro Ximenez
Elaboration: A roughly 3-year-old blend of biologically and oxidatively aged Palomino wines with about 120g/L of residual sugar.
Tasting Notes: Aromas of roasted nuts, nougat, and caramel. Velvety mouthfeel with a well-balanced sweetness, seductively elegant lingering finish.
NV – 90 Wine Spectator
Founded in 1821, Barbadillo is without question Sanlucar de Barrameda’s most iconic producer of Sherry. The thing we appreciate most about Barbadillo is that they’ve remained staunchly committed to tradition in the face of continued growth – Base wines are all still fermented in house through the company’s network of sixteen historic bodegas and the variety and depth of their soleras is breathtaking . With the Sherry category seeing more excitement than ever before in history, Barbadillo is delivering big time, with a panoply of single vineyard and heirloom releases. From their groundbreaking ‘Solear’ Manzanilla to their almost impossible to procure ‘Reliquia’ series and everything in between, tasting through the Barbadillo lineup is an inspirational and energizing experience.
