Morenita Cream N/V

Vintages:

Wine Description

Morenita-meaning the little brunette-refers to rich brown color of this sherry.  The blend of Palomino and Pedro Ximénez lends to this wine, a rich brown color with dark golden highlights. Created by a close family-friend and local grower back in the 1970’s, to mimic the classic Jerezano tavern blend of mixing fino and pedro ximenez, Morenita is a delightful sherry.

Tasting Notes

This is a delicate style cream with hints of caramel, dried fruits and mocha on the nose. Smooth and elegant with well-balanced sweetness, it still manages to be refreshing.

Food Pairing

Serve slightly chilled or on the rocks as an aperitif or enjoy with mildly rich meals.
