Harveys Bristol Cream
|Region||Spain, Jerez / Sherry / Manzanilla|
Launched in 1882, and granted the Royal Warrant shortly after, Bristol Cream is crafted from a delicate blend of Jerez's finest wines; delicate finos, aged amontillados, fragrant olorosos and the special Pedro Ximenez grape providing a silky, mellow smoothness. Known for its deep golden chestnutty and amber tones, the nose is full, fragrant, pungent and elegant all at once. On the palate Bristol Cream delivers a full bodied experience with rich yet mellow notes leaving a long lasting and velvety finish. A complete, balanced and surprising compendium of wine from Jerez, it's best enjoyed chilled at 12°C in a wine glass or mix over ice with a slice of orange.
Moderately sweet and one-dimensional, showing a light caramel flavor and a hint of oxidation. Drink now. 120,000 cases imported.
Lustau East India Solera Sherry 750mlDark mahogany in color with green-amber edge. It offers vibrant notes of maple syrup, brown sugar, shoe polish, raisin and chocolate beer nuts, all very well integrated. On the palate it is smooth and rich at the beginning, full of prune and burned oranges peel flavors. Provocative spicy notes appear just before its nuttiness and terrific acidity cuts through the sweetness. With a truly unforgettable finish. This wine is a perfect companion to light desserts and cakes, but can also be served with creamy cheeses or foie-gras. Try it also on the rocks with a slice of orange, simply delicious.
Tio Pepe Fino Sherry 750mlDue to the fact that the flor protects Too Pepe from oxygen it has been able to maintain a pale golden yellow color. On the nose sharp yet elegant aromas of the yeast from the flor balanced with toasted almond notes typical of the Palomino variety. On the palate completely dry with reminders of almonds. Surprisingly fresh after 4 years spent in oak with a long and complex finish. Tip Pepe should be served very chilled in a small white wine glass in order to appreciate the full bouquet of aromas. Perfect as an aperitif with olives, Liberian ham and cheese however also ideal for dishes such as seafood and fish. Due to its low levels of acetic acid it matches perfectly with acidic elements such as vinegar. Tip Pepe should be consumed as soon as possible and also kept well chilled.

Aromas of ripe fruit, with hints of wood and raisins. Ideal to accompany mature cheeses, rich soups, mushroom cream, artichokes and green asparagus.
Lustau Solera Reserva Don Nuño Dry Oloroso Sherry 750mlIf you are looking for a dry sherry made in a slightly more oxidized style, the non-vintage Dry Oloroso Don Nuno Solera Reserva is your choice. Again, a nuttiness (in this case, walnuts) intermixed with a hint of Chinese black tea combine with salty, caramelized flavors make for a delicious glass of sherry.
