Fascinatingly complex with a light Christmas pudding nose of dried fruits, nuts, and a well flambéed crust - think crème brulée. The rich concentrated flavours and tangy acidity are softened by a sweetness on the palate which brings it all together in a wonderfully balanced way.

One of the most exceptional of the small, independent sherry houses, Fernando de Castilla was revitalised in 1999 by Jan Pettersen - a Norwegian with a passion for top quality sherry, and 15 years experience at Osborne. After taking over the cellars of the Sherry shipper Jose Bustamante, located next door to the main facilities of Fernando de Castilla, Jan quickly established Fernando de Castilla as masters of the production and ageing of fine, unblended, untreated Sherries.

Grapes sourced from some of the best vineyards in Jerez known for their Palomino grape production.

Fernando de Castilla deals only in prestigious, premium wines. The sherries are all from individual soleras. They are bottled without blending, cold stabilization or filtration of any kind in order to preserve the subtlety, purity and distinctive aromas of these premium wines. The products are all bottled in clear glass to show off the wonderful colour of the wines. The classic Cream is produced from an Oloroso that has been aged for 6 years, and prior to bottling 20% of young PX is blended into the wine.

It tastes are reminiscent of rich Christmas cake, so why not have a slice with it?
