Romate Cream

Romate Cream is smooth, sweet and velvety with fruit aromas and hints of oak this is a perfect example of harmonious balance

In 1781 the Sanchez Romate Sherry house laid down its firm’s Solera in Jerez de la Frontera, the hottest part of the Sherry country.

The town of Jerez doesn’t have the influence of the maritime breezes, and the warmer climate affects the ageing process of the wines.

With this in mind we’ve selected a range of wines that benefit from greater complexity and richness.

herry is an Anglicisation of Jerez, the central town in the south-west corner of Spain. In it’s time it has been invaded by Ottomans, Romans, Huns and the Moors.

While these left some splendid architectural traces and pretty ceramic tile work, 400 years or British merchant dominance has celebrated, entrenched and refined the production of the diverse group of lightly fortified wines which today we call “sherry”.

Sherries come in sweet and dry, rich and elegant styles. They’re made from both brown and predominantly white grapes. http://jerez-xeres-sherry.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/fino-perdido-15-sanchez-romate.html

But what they all share is an extended period of barrel maturation (4 years minimum for decent wines) in a solera system, and fortification with three or more degrees of clean, neutral alcohol.

Sanchéz Romate was founded in the late 18th century by Juan Sánchez de la Torre, and today is one of the few D.O. Jerez wineries to still be in the hands of local owners.

Over time the winery has grown and adapted to modernisation and technology, whilst maintaining their respect for traditional viticulture and Sherry production.

Each year, our vineyards receive roughly 3,000 hours of sunshine, accompanied by relatively heavy rainfalls of about 600 l/ m².

The land scape of the area consists primarily of white limestone hills, known as “albariza.” Its richness is due to the fact that the region was under water thousands of years ago.

To a lesser extent, areas of mud and sand appear near the coastal regions.

Mas Amiel Maury Vintage Rouge 2018

Mas Amiel Maury Vintage Rouge is made in the same style as the rimage wines of Banyuls. From 100% Grenache Noir grown on the southfacing broken schists and marne soils and yields of 25 hl/ha, the grapes are subsequently sorted, destemmed and vinified in the normal way. The alcohol is added while the wine is still in the vat (mutage sur les grains), which slows down the final fermentation, allowing a longer period of maceration and thereby conferring greater richness. This Maury is ruby with violet tints and the nose eloquently expresses framboise, cherry and crème-de-cassis. It is smooth in the mouth, the red fruits reinforced by bitter chocolate and spice as well as fine tannins. 0.75l bottle. This fleshy, yet refreshing, fruity wine is a perfect match for red fruit or chocolate desserts. It is a seductive, pure Grenache varietal that also pairs well with sweet and sour dishes.

Taylor’s 10 Year Old Tawny

An exceptionally fine old tawny blend, aged for an average of 10 years in oak casks. Elegant and smooth, combining delicate wood notes and rich mellow fruit, it is bottled for immediate drinking. Excellent with soft cheeses such as brie, and a superb dessert wine, particularly with dishes made with coffee or almonds, Taylor’s 10 Year Old Tawny is delicious served lightly chilled at the end of the meal.

Fonseca Terra Prima

Silky-smooth aromas of crushed red berry fruits and chocolate with little herbal nuances. On the palate that herbal quality is still there but some pure, velvety, cherry and plum fruit fills in nicely, the subtle sweetness developing but staying balanced by a certain acidity and a fairly nimble, lighter-bodied character. A spicy finish too in a style that is not heavy and very sippable. 89/100 Tom Cannavan, www.wine-pages.com

Hildago Triana Pedro Ximenez

The wine has aromas of raisins and prunes and an opulently sweet taste of figs and treacle. Served slightly chilled, Pedro Ximenez of this quality can either be served on its own as a luxurious after-dinner drink, or as a dessert wine. Try with chocolate puddings, at Christmas or even poured over rum and raisin ice cream!

This appellation overhangs the Mediterranean Sea on the southern French coast bordering Spain and sits atop soils of stony schist soil.

Fonseca Bin 27

Sweet and macerated fruit on the nose, initially with a little confectionery and violets, nevertheless very traditional with plenty of fruit, a moderate substance and a gently creamy midpalate. There is plenty of peppery grip, good acidity and a very firm structure. All in all though it has a nice style, with good substance to it, plenty of dark, tobacco-laced fruits and an attractive roasted-herb edge

Henriques and Henriques 3 Year Old Medium Rich

This has a nut-brown colour and oxidised, nutty nose, with a hint of chocolate and more raisiny fruit. On the palate it has an intensity and sweetness that makes and immediate mark, with quite a broad mid-palate and a touch of alcoholic heat, with some caramel and fruity flavours, with a fine acid structure that is beautifully fresh and crisp in the finish.
