This is a classic cream style sherry from one of Spain's most well known sherry producers. Elegante Cream is sweet and rich, with nuttiness and notes of caramel, dried fruits and gentle spice.
The sweetest and richest of all the Sherry styles
Pedro Ximenez is the richest, and sweetest of the Spanish sherry styles. This example from Lustau is the business.
Pedro Ximénez grapes are laid out in the sun after picking until they are practically raisins. After that the fermentation starts slowly and its halted to maintain all the natural sugars. The resulting wine ages in for 12 years in contact with the air in Jerez de la Frontera.
Ebony in colour with iodine highlights. The aromas are reminiscent of figs, raisins and dates. Enormously sweet, velvety and soft on the palate, well balanced, with a very long finish.
Try with Cheese, sticky date pudding, chocolate desserts or pour over vanilla ice cream.
