    The Gutiérrez Colosía Bodegas are located in Puerto de Santa Maria and date back to 1838.

    Pedro Ximenéz, Gutiérrez Colosía, El Puerto de Santa María, 17% vol, 37.5cl

    SH02

    The Gutiérrez Colosía Bodegas are located in Puerto de Santa María and date back to 1838.

     

    The architecture of the warehouses is known as Nave Cathedral (cathedral-like). These arched buildings, of significant height, help expose the wines to the influence of the local climate.

     

    A rich and concentrated PX. Ageing in the relatively cooler climate of El Puerto de Santa María brings a touch of balancing finesse to this rich wine.

  • Manzanilla “La Gitana” En Rama, Bodegas Hidalgo, Sanlucar de Barrameda, 15% vol, 75cl

    Manzanilla “La Gitana” En Rama, Bodegas Hidalgo, Sanlucar de Barrameda, 15% vol, 75cl

    SH01

    Don Jose Pantaleón Hidalgo founded the Bodega Hidalgo in 1792 in the coastal town of Sanlucar de Barrameda.

     

    En Rama is sherry at its very best – lightly filtered, natural, un-fined, un-stabilized, pure, free run juice directly from the barrel. This wonderful sherry demonstrates glorious concentration of all the aromas and flavours that Manzanilla has to offer at its very peak. Made from 100% Palomino grapes grown on white albariza soils at Hidalgo’s highest quality vineyards of Balbaina and Miraflores, this Manzanilla is released in extremely limited quantities (only 35 barrels of the solera are used) and can be considered the best value sherry in the world.

     

    Produced only twice a year to coincide with the flor cycle, the wine has spent 8 years in the solera and the wines  have even more complexity and character than the standard “La Gitana” bottlings. This is the Spring 2020 bottling.

     

    Intense, complex and balanced on the nose, it has a wonderful salty character influenced by the close proximity of the cellars in Sanlúcar de Barrameda to the sea (only 300m away) as well as the altitude of the Balbaina vineyard (110m). Matured using the traditional “Criaderas y Solera” process in American oak casks, under a layer of “flor” integrated by the yeasts, the wine is intensely gold with green tints. Complex, spicy and delicate aroma, on the palate, this wine is elegant, light and fresh underscored by a salty tanginess. A touch of citrus bitterness gives this wine a fresh finish. One sip and you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to the Bodega and treated to an ice cold glass of Manzanilla direct from the barrel!

     

    The ultimate aperitif!

  • “Marismeño” Fino, Sánchez Romate Hermanos, Jerez de la Frontera, 15% vol, 75cl

    “Marismeño” Fino, Sánchez Romate Hermanos, Jerez de la Frontera, 15% vol, 75cl

    SH26

    Juan Sánchez de la Torre founded Sánchez Romate in 1781 in Jerez to produce fine wines. More than two centuries later Sánchez Romate is one of the oldest bodegas in Spain and one of the few that remains in family hands. This has allowed the company to maintain its independence and continue making wines in the same time-honoured tradition. Over the years their quality has been rewarded with appointments to the Huse of Lords and the Vatican.

     

    This is not your ordinary style of Fino. With its name translated as “Lost Fino”, it’s a mature style that has spent eight years in cask. It has plenty of complexity and concentration but still retains its freshness and vibrancy.

  • “Cardenal Cisneros” Pedro Ximénez, Sánchez Romate Hernanos, Jerez de la Frontera, 18% vol, 75cl

    “Cardenal Cisneros” Pedro Ximénez, Sánchez Romate Hernanos, Jerez de la Frontera, 18% vol, 75cl

    SH27

    Juan Sánchez de la Torre founded Sánchez Romate in 1781 in Jerez to produce fine wines. More than two centuries later Sánchez Romate is one of the oldest bodegas in Spain and one of the few that remains in family hands. This has allowed the company to maintain its independence and continue making wines in the same time-honoured tradition. Over the years their quality has been rewarded with appointments to the Huse of Lords and the Vatican.

     

    This after-dinner wine par excellence is made from Pedro Ximénez grapes, harvested when very ripe and left out in the sun to attain a higher concentration of sugar. The result is a delicately exquisite, dark-coloured wine with a sweet flavour and a velvety texture.

     

    Perfect with rich puddings – especially Christmas pudding. Delicious poured over really good home made vanilla ice cream!

  • “Regente” Palo Cortado, Sánchez Romate Hermanos, Jerez de la Frontera, 20% vol, 75cl

    “Regente” Palo Cortado, Sánchez Romate Hermanos, Jerez de la Frontera, 20% vol, 75cl

    SH25

    Juan Sánchez de la Torre founded Sánchez Romate in 1781 in Jerez to produce fine wines. More than two centuries later Sánchez Romate is one of the oldest bodegas in Spain and one of the few that remains in family hands. This has allowed the company to maintain its independence and continue making wines in the same time-honoured tradition. Over the years their quality has been rewarded with appointments to the Huse of Lords and the Vatican.

     

    One of the unique wines of the world – Palo Cortados cannot be made to order, they either  happen or they don’t. Somewhat of a halfway house between an old dry Amontillado and a dry Oloroso.

     

    Dark and brooding in the glass, the nose is close to that of an Amontillado, nuts – almonds, cashews, walnuts. Raisins and dried apricots, zesty orange peel as well.  Elegant and aromatic.

     

    The palate is more akin to Oloroso. Dry, velvety and rich, with a relatively subdued acidity. Citrus notes (oranges and lemon zest). Roasted coffee beans, hazelnuts and the bitterness of dark chocolate. Hints of tobacco.

     

    A very complex and extraordinary wine.
