  • “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!

This has allowed the company to maintain its independence and continue making wines in the same time-honoured tradition.

    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.
