Meet this year’s UK winner of the Tio Pepe Challenge!
From a boy playing amongst the barrels to IWC Fortified Winemaker of the year.
It’s dry. It’s gold. It’s an amontillado. It’s the perfect refreshing aperitif if you serve it cold and want to surprise and delight.
Leonor, the latest addition to the premium range, is a Palo Cortado – that most mysterious of sherry styles; aged for over 12 years it has fine aromas of wood, vanilla and almonds and a deliciously nutty palate.
An oloroso that’s oh so tasty. Dryish, nuttyish and very very moreish. Serve chilled with snacks and confidence.
A sweet oloroso. A classic. Try it over ice and with good puds. Liquid gold.
The clue’s in the name. The taste of the rich Pedro Ximenez grape is deep, dark and delicious. Pour it over vanilla ice cream. Intense.
Dry and nutty and as smooth as ermine. Truly the aristocrat of old sherries. Turns a few nibbles into a royal banquet.
A rare creature – a palo cortado. No-one knows why about 1% of the grapes naturally develop into this incredibly complex, just off-dry drink. And when you’re enjoying its seemingly endless finish, you won’t even care.
Another example of that most exclusive of wines – a 30 year old sherry. As dark, silky and sweet as an Andalcian August night. A very, very good dessert wine.
