Williams & Humbert Collection Oloroso (375ml)

Sherry, Oloroso from Spain



Olorosos develop in barrel without the protective flor layer, often for many years. Because they’ve seen so much oxidation during development, they are pretty stable and stay in good condition for a while once the bottle is opened.

Ranging from rich amber to deep mahogany in colour, the darker the wine the longer it has been aged. Warm, rounded aromas which are both complex and powerful. Predominantly nutty bouquet (walnuts), with toasted, vegetable and balsamic notes reminiscent of noble wood, golden tobacco and autumn leaves. There are noticeable spicy, animal tones suggestive of truffles and leather.

The ideal temperature at which to serve an Oloroso is at between 13 and 14ºC.

Bodegas Williams & Humbert was founded in 1877 by Sir Alexander Williams, a great admirer and connoisseur of sherry products, and Arthur Humbert, a specialist in international relations. The name is now used by the Medina family for all their sherry interests.

This sherry spends more than 12 years in the criaderas and soleras system. It is made from Palomino grapes and has 19° alcohol which is typical.
