Tasting Notes from the Curator

On the palate, this sherry waltzes gracefully, teasing with the saccharine specter of honeyed raisins, the warmth of cacao-dusted hazelnuts, and bewitching whispers of fig bread. A heart of darkness emerges, as echoes of bittersweet chocolate and freshly brewed coffee reveal themselves, lingering like fond memories.

### Pairings & Suggestions

  • Cured Meats and Aged Cheese: The salinity of cured meats such as prosciutto ham or the sharp tang of aged cheeses like Parmesan and Manchego are brilliantly balanced by the wine’s rich, nutty flavors. \n Roasted Nuts: Pair with a handful of roasted almonds or hazelnuts to complement the nutty undertones in the sherry. \n Earthy Delights: Dishes with earthy tones like truffle-infused pasta or risotto, sautéed mushrooms or a hearty beef stew are a splendid pairing for the wine’s robust features. \n *Decadent Desserts: Its rich profile harmonizes delightfully with desserts such as a dark chocolate ganache tart or creamy caramel flan.
