Korbel Cream Sherry NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Korbel Cream Sherry is a sweet and rich dessert wine with a distinctive flavor of dried fruit and roasted nuts. Korbel Cream Sherry is made by stopping the fermentation of a white wine at about the halfway point by adding neutral grape spirits. The young sherry is then warmed and exposed to air for several weeks. This intentional oxidation causes the wine to become a rich golden brown color and to develop the classic nutty characters of Cream Sherry. The new sherry is aged in oak barrels and casks for smoothness and complexity. When we blend the wines for Korbel Cream Sherry, we typically blend about twice as much as we are planning on bottling. The remaining wine is left in cask, and used as the base for the following years blend. This solera blending method is traditional for sherry, and is an important part of the style of sherry we produce. Enjoy Korbel Cream Sherry with strong cheeses, or as a digestif to end a special meal.
