    Varietal: Sherry

    Item no. 59114

    Winemaker's Notes:

    East India is an appealing deep tawny brown, and offers a complex, mature nose of burnt sugar, spices, raisins, chocolate, walnuts and orange peel. It is sweet and full-bodied, with a smooth, almost treacle-like consistency, but good balancing acidity. There is a faint rancio character that adds complexity, and a fresh, everlasting finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The dark amber-hued non-vintage East India Solera is essentially an old Oloroso blended with an old Pedro Ximenez, which gives it a sweet character. It offers more mature notes of maple syrup, brown sugar, spice box, raisin and chocolate beer nuts, and its terrific balancing acidity cuts through the sweetness. This delicious effort is best drunk after the meal.

    The Wine Advocate

    "One of the finest sweet fortified wines in the world, this one has superior balance of everything. Medium to dark brown in color; a tremendous rush of toffee in the aromas, super alluring and rich; full bodied and packed on the palate; very sweet, superior balance; enticing toffee, rancio flavors, light brown sugar; medium to finish; endless love in the aftertaste. Simply super!”

    This is a selection from botas of Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez raised separately and then blended to age for three years in solera. The result puts the sweetness of the PX in front, with flavors of plum jam and tobacco. The salinity of the Oloroso brings freshness and fine minerality that play softly in the background.
