The "Old & Plus” range of Sherry wines brings together the most select and chosen production of the Sánchez Romate Hermanos bodega. They are the best kept secrets of the winery: truly unique wines, certified by the Regulatory Council of the Denomination of Origin of Sherry with the rating "Very Old Rare Sherry" (VORS).
The Sánchez Romate Hermanos winery is the official supplier to the Spanish monarchy, of the House of Lords of the United Kingdom and of the Holy Apostolic Palace of the Vatican. "Old & Plus" is an extraordinary wine from Jerez with an absolutely unique character.
The range of Sherry wines "Old & Plus" brings together the most select and chosen production of Sánchez Romate Hermanos. They are the best kept secrets of the winery: truly unique wines, certified by the Regulatory Council of the Denomination of Origin of Sherry with the rating "Very Old Rare Sherry" (VORS).
This coveted seal (VORS) is awarded to the few wines that exceed thirty years of ageing after having passed a rigorous process of control (batch to batch) by a committee of independent experts of the Regulatory Board in which they carry out exhaustive analytical tests with Carbon 14 dating that confirm, in a scientific way, the average age of the wine.
The "Old & Plus” wines of Sánchez Romate are part of a privileged group of some of the oldest wines in the world, valued as "treasures of enology" by the most renowned experts.
On average, these wines have an age greater than three decades, but they contain traces from soleras that can easily be more than two centuries old, going right back to the beginning of the winery.
These selected wines were traditionally separated from the rest by previous generations of the winery owners for exclusive consumption by family and friends, and are marketed now as "Old & Plus", for the enjoyment of lovers of good wine.
If the "Old & Plus" wines are special themselves, their presentation is their equal. Sánchez Romate Hermanos has been inspired by the bottles of the type of "Ship's Decanter" of the British Royal Navy of the 18th century, with a necessarily ample base to guarantee maximum stability in the admiral's cabin while travelling on the high seas.
"Old & Plus” are a range of three wines from Jerez (an Amontillado, an Oloroso and a Pedro Ximénez) that are presented in an exclusive and innovative format, quite far from the classic bottle from Jerez, and very different from the bottles of reds or whites that we are used to seeing.
A generous wine made with fine palomino grapes. It develops and ages in oak barrels for more than thirty years according to traditional processes typical of Jerez.
With noticeable legs in the glass, leaving the trace of its elegant dark amber colour. In the nose and mouth it stands out for its prodigious softness and its intense nutty aromas.
