It can be consumed very cold by itself and with desserts, or on ice as a refreshing drink.
This is a medium sweet Sherry from Williams and Humbert, made from a combination of Palomino and Pedro Ximenez grapes. Aged for at least 6 years, it is slightly sweetened during this process making it more versatile in that it can be matched with food rather than being enjoyed purely as a drink - light pasta dishes will work very well.
Described as being half way between an Oloroso and an Amontillado, the Dos Cortados Solera from Williams and Humbert is aged for an average of 20 years producing a deep and rich flavour, balanced with the perfect level of acidity. This will be delicious with a variety of cheeses such as Cheddar and Gruyere, or equally so on its own after a meal.
Made using Palomino grapes, this is a sherry packed with flavour but with a long and delicate finish on the palate. Produced by Valdespino with a history of sherry production going back six Centuries, their vines span a huge area of 750 hectares which is rare in this region!
