Details

Romate Amontillado Sherry 750ml, delicious, oxidised medium sherry Sanchez Romate. Made by fortifying the wine made from Palamino grapes, so that no flor yeast develops but a slow, controlled oxidation is allowed to take place. This gives the amontillado its trademark amber colour. It's then aged through the solera system to provide consistency. The Romate has intense nutty aromas and refined palate - the features of an exceptionla sherry! I always find a chilled glass of Amontillado gets my juices flowing before a meal - but it's also great served alongside broths or with chicken or rabbit.

Juan Sánchez de la Torre originally founded Sanchez Romate in 1781 in Jerez, and to this day, Sánchez Romate is one of the oldest bodegas in Spain and one of the few that remains in family hands. This means they are still able to produce traditional wines independently, using grapes from their own vineyards (in the best albariza soil areas of Jerez). Recently they have 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. These are some of the best sherries we've tasted.
