Made with Oloroso sherry sweetened with a touch of Pedro Ximénez, the Bodegas Gutierrez Colosia Cream sherry is dark in color with a round, crisp and velvety aroma. Aged for at least 5 years, it has the same nutty flavors as the Oloroso with a creamy, balanced sweetness that makes it perfect as an aperitif or dessert wine. Served chilled, it's a great match to a variety of pastries and desserts.
COMPOSITION: Palomino and Pedro Ximénez
ABOUT THE PRODUCER:
For nearly 200 years, Bodegas Gutierrez Colosia has grown grapes for sherry in the city of El Puerto de Santa Maria. Located in the province of Cadiz, El Puerto de Santa Maria's unique micro-climate is the perfect environment needed for aging sherry and developing the "flor" layer of yeast that gives sherry its unique taste and aroma.
Bodegas Gutierrez Colosia was founded in 1838 on the mouth of the Guadalete river. The climate and ocean winds here create an ideal environment for the aging of the Bodega's wines.
Traditionally they sold their sherry supply to larger sherry houses who would blend and bottle the wine. In 1997, Bodegas Gutierrez Colosia, followed the lead of other small sherry suppliers and began to bottle the wine themselves in order to preserve the uniqueness of their vineyard's micro-climate.
