A blend of Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez Sherries, this mix of complex and sweet is the 'good' version of Grandma's Cream Sherry. 'East India' signifies the extra barrel aging which hopes to replicate the ultimate in barrel development: being sent by ship to the East Indies. Dark in colour its fresh acidity and not-too-syrupy sweetness hold up lots of layers of dried fruit, coffee, toffee and chocolate. Delicious by itself or with dark, rich desserts.

Overview

Its Origins

Each individual component of this blend (Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez) is aged in its own Solera. After blending, the wine is further aged for three years in a solera of 33 American oak casks before bottling. A dark mahogany colour with bronze hues. Concentrated aromas of ripe fruits, mocca, cocoa and toffee. Very complex on the palate, with a clean acidity and flavour of raisins, nuts, crystallized orange and candied peel. Ideal with rich cakes, egg based puddings and blue cheeses (Stilton, Gorgonzola). Also as an ideal digestif for the sweet-toothed.

What The Critics Say

94/100 Robert Parker

"Readers looking for something weighty, sweet, and provocative should check out the non-vintage East India Solera. A blend of soleras averaging 15 to 50 years of age, it boasts a dark amber color as well as a huge nose of melted toffee, caramel, figs, and prunes. This over-the-top yet surprisingly vibrant (because of good acidity) effort is best drunk as dessert at the end of a meal."
