La Cigarrera Sherry Manzanilla Nv 375ml Product #31990 (In Stock)
La Cigarrera Sherry Manzanilla Nv 375ml La Cigarrera Sherry Manzanilla Nv 375ml

A classic Manzanilla sherry - like a fresh and salty Fino but with more salty minerality.  Green olive and fresh almond scents carry through on the palate and are joined by exotic notes of honeysuckle, fresh herb, and loads of salty seashell.  Finishes bone dry and crisp and very long.

Valdespino Amontillado Medium Dry Contrabandista Sherry Product #33043 (In Stock)

Just a touch off-dry to round out Amontillado's zippy acids, this is delicious!

"The NV Contrabandista is a blend of the style called medium dry that is usually a very commercial category of cheap sherries. It is an off-dry blend of Palomino produced in an Amontillado way (biological + oxidative aging) and around 5% Pedro Ximénez with 30 grams of residual sugar which averages 18 years of age. It's has a mahogany color, with a bright amber border with aromas of dates and raisins that give a sapid, bittersweet sensation in a medium-bodied palate of moderate sweetness. This is easy to drink."Wine Advocate 89 points

Valdespino Amontillado Tio Diego NV Product #32855 (In Stock)
Valdespino Amontillado Tio Diego NV Valdespino Amontillado Tio Diego NV

"I’ve often called Valdespino 'the Romanee-Conti of Jerez.' The NV Tio Diego Amontillado Palomino from the Macharnudo vineyard, is fermented in botas, aged biologically for 10 years under flor in a solera separated from Inocente, and with a further five years of oxidative aging. It has a beautiful, perfumed nose of dry flowers, very elegant and clean, subtle, with some saline notes, both in the nose and the palate, where it is balanced, medium-bodied and elegant. A very fine Amontillado, showing superb value for a 15-year-old wine." Wine Advocate 92 points

Hidalgo Gobernador Jerez Olorosso Seco NV Product #31265 (In Stock)
Hidalgo Gobernador Jerez Olorosso Seco NV Hidalgo Gobernador Jerez Olorosso Seco NV

As Wine Advocate explains, "Emilio Hidalgo founded his bodega in the center of Jerez in 1874, where it is still managed by the fifth generation of the family. They have an impressive range of wines, with some of the original soleras containing wines over 100 years old."  This is a wonderfully rich - but bone dry - Oloroso that spends one year under flor before aging a total of 12 years in cask.  Pretty citrus-like fruit with notes of green tea, walnut and dry caramel and a finish that sails on and on.

 

 

For an earlier release, but still on point! "Notes of anise and clove distinguish this robust Oloroso, accenting its salinity. It recalls the coasts of Jerez with aromas and flavors of iodine, salt and the signature earthy dampness of Hidalgo's very old soleras. Firm on the palate, with sharp acidity that penetrates the depths of the wine's flavors, this would be delicious with clams sautéed in olive oil and garlic."Wine & Spirits 94 points

For an earlier release, but still accurate! "Shows lovely focus and persistence, with a prominent thread of bitter almond that runs from start to finish, while singed clove, dried orange peel, juniper, roasted cedar and ginger notes fill in the remaining space. Long finish."Wine Spectator 92 points

Gomez Nevado Sierra Morena Dorado Sherry Product #33386 (In Stock)

It's not Sherry - Sierra Morena used to be as popular as Sherry, but no more - but if you like the wines of Jerez, you're going to love this.  Think of it as Amontillado, but one from organically grown grapes and without fortification (it's just 17%, all natural).  Bone dry, tangy, loaded with salted caramel, hickory nut and toast flavors, this finishes superb and long.  Just captivating and not to be missed.
