Having visited Jan, owner of Fernando de Castilla in Jerez 5 years on the trot, we were very excited to finally get these in stock!
This is the sweetest style of sherry and in our opinion is made to be poured over delicious vanilla icecream, but equally it is a fantastic drink on its own, and a wonderful way to end a meal.
The nose has intense dried fruit such as raisins, prunes and dates, coupled with brown spices of nutmeg and clove, reminiscent of Christmas cake. Unctuous sweetness marries well with intense and complex flavours freshened by a touch of acidity.
This also pairs very well to chocolate desserts.
