Sanchez Romate Pedro Ximenez Sherry Cisneros 18%, Reserva Especiale, Jerez
Juan Sánchez de la Torre founded the company in 1781 in Jerez to produce fine wines. Two hundred twenty five years later Sánchez Romate is one of the oldest bodegas in Spain and one of the few that remains in family hands. This has allowed it to maintain its independence and continue making wines in the same time-honoured fashion. Over the years their quality has been rewarded with appointments to the House of Lords and the Vatican. To ensure quality from vineyard to bottle Sánchez Romate not only owns its own vineyards—in the best albariza soil areas of Jerez—but also has invested in some of the most modern facilities in the region—all of which are still housed in the bodega buildings located in central Jerez. These traditional cellars with their high ceilings keep temperatures stable and allow the natural yeasts to circulate while the sand floors keep the humidity at the correct levels. The ageing process is through traditional criaderas y soleras with 500 litre American oak casks filled to five-sixths and arranged in layers of three to four. The company produces three different ranges of sherry, from the classic Romate range to the Reservas Especiales through to La Sacristía—the company’s oenological treasures. Sanchez Romate Pedro Ximenez Cisneros has a nose full of raisins and sultanas with just
a touch of nuts, dried fruit and oaky spice. The palate is big, rich with a luscious velvety feel. The finish is very sweet but with balancing acidity, creamy raisins, espresso coffee and a touch of dark chocolate. Serve as a dessert wine with ice cream, pastries and even blue cheese.
