Alcohol/vol 20%
Dark gold in colour with khaki hues. Penetrating aromas of noble woods, varnish and nuts with a great concentration. A rich and mellow wine, with immense flavours of smoky wood, of prunes and bitter chocolate. Complex and ample on the palate, smooth and warming with a lingering aftertaste. To Serve: Serve slightly chilled, between 13 - 14 oC (55 - 57 oF). This wine accompanies red and smoked meats, game, mature cheeses, spicy Asian dishes, and may also be served as a digestive.

Fans of fine Sherry are the target market for this excellent, ethereal oloroso. The nose is clean and mild, with citrus, nuts and flower blossom. There's nothing pushy or heavy about it; in fact, it's so refined and layered that you don't notice anything but the wine's lovely buttery notes, toffee and coffee. Very demure and pure.

Juicy and fresh, with engaging orange peel, date and hazelnut notes leading the way, backed by whiffs of pistachio, green tea and salted caramel on the finish. Delicious. Drink now. 250 cases imported.

The NV Emperatriz Eugenia Very Rare Oloroso is produced from Palomino from a solera created in 1921 to celebrate the visit of French Empress Eugenia de Montijo. It reveals an old wine, brown-colored, with a nose of noble woods, hazelnuts and varnish, a medium- to full-bodied palate, round, glycerin-rich and ample, ending dry and a bit warm. Drink 2013-2016.
