  • NPU (Non Plus Ultra) Amontillado, Sánchez Romate Hermanos, Jerez de la Frontera, 19% vol, 75cl

    NPU (Non Plus Ultra) Amontillado, Sánchez Romate Hermanos, Jerez de la Frontera, 19% vol, 75cl

    SH17

    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.

     

    Dry, smooth, with bright amber hues. The lasting fragrance is reminiscent of peanuts. It is made from a Fino which later undergoes a second ageing period, but without the yeast layer. The complex ageing results in one of the finest sherries, a superb complement to starters, especially those which are marinated in vinegar.

  • Amontillado Seco, Gutiérrez Colosía, El Puerto de Santa Maria, 18% vol, 75cl

    Amontillado Seco, Gutiérrez Colosía, El Puerto de Santa Maria, 18% vol, 75cl

    SH20

    The Gutiérrez Colosía Bodegas are located in Puerto de Santa Maria 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.

     

    Having started off as a fino under flor, the protective layer of yeast cells was lost after about 3 years allowing oxidation to take place. The resulting wine is a lovely amber colour with a nose full of nutty and dried fruit aromas that follow through to the full, rounded and layered palate . Very dry, searching & complex.

    Cuco” has a beautiful mahogany colour and a nose rich in oak, leather notes and aromas of dried fruits. The palate is full, textured and dry with a very long finish

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

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

    SH25

    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.
