Professional Wine Reviews for Valdespino Cream Oloroso Vos Solera 1842 Sherry NV

Rated 91 by Robert Parker
Produced in an unusual style for high end wines, the NV Solera 1942 VOS is a semi-sweet Oloroso with around 8% Pedro Ximénez, 60 grams of residual sugar and quite high acidity (6.8 grams) compared with others. It's a very old Oloroso with the PX added at around the halfway mark in its aging process (around 30 years on average) so the two will be well integrated with each other. This is close to a Cream Sherry, and has an unusual nose with aromas of tar, charred oranges, tobacco, menthol with some reductive touches that are fresh and sweet at the same time; quite unusual. The palate is quite sweet, but somehow balanced, intense, round, with good length. The price shown is for half bottle.

Winery Valdespino

Country: Spain

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
