Iberia Cream – balanced long finish

Sánchez Romate is best known for its Brandy Cardenal Mendoza Solera Gran Reserva, one of the world’s best-selling brandies. Bodegas Sánchez Romate Hermanos, based in Jerez de la Frontera, was founded in 1781 and has been owned by five families since 1954. The main sales are made with brandy, the bodegas also owns some excellent old sherry soleras and produces sherry in three categories from the 100 hectares of vineyards planted with Palomino Fino: Romate (base row), Special Reserves (middle-aged sherry) and VOS (very old sherry) or VORS (very old rare sherry), i.e. very old sherry or very old rare sherry.

We tasted a sherry from the Special Reserves category, the Romate Iberia Cream. The wine is made from Oloroso and PX (Pedro Ximénez) sherry, with Sánchez Romate using the PX grapes originating from Montilla-Moriles.

Romate Iberia Cream, Sánchez Romate (Tasted Wines)
Brown in the glass with an amber rim. Coconut, maple syrup, light barrel notes and a hint of cola on the nose. In the taste with a very good balance, fine acidity, round and at the same time quite firm, subtle, saliva-stimulating sweetness, dark-spicy. Notes of coffee, walnut, dried figs, with delicate shatpness in the long echoing finish. Excellent wine.
