Concentrated and complex dried-fruit character that spans the fruit spectrum from citrus through to raisins. There’s a ton of caramel, too. Yet, miraculously, this isn’t a jot too much. Rather, the acidity shines a laser beam of light-like clarity onto these riches. Great length. Drink this sweet-sherry marvel now!
DWWA 2018 Gold Medal: Nuts and coffee on the wonderfully complex nose, with hints of cheese, rich deep chocolatey palate with coffee and spice in the delightfully long finish.
Forget about Sherry styles, Matusalem operates in its own zone with its own rules. An intense, smoky nose shows charred barrel notes and prune aromas. A rich but snappy palate is not the least bit sticky, while deep flavors of chocolate, coffee, vanilla and molasses finish with grace. *Editors’ Choice* (MS)
The NV Matusalem 30 Anos Oloroso VORS used to be sold as Oloroso Dulce, but this category is no more contemplated by the appellation, so technically it will be a Cream, but that’s a category that has some not-so-positive connotations in certain markets. Anyway, it is produced with 75% Palomino and 25% Pedro Ximenez grapes. The solera dates from 1847, and the bottled wine is on average 30 years old. The palate is very sweet, with the Oloroso character fighting hard not to be dominated by the typical flavors of Pedro Ximenez, dry figs, coffee, arrope, and feels low in acidity and quite dense. This could work with soft-paste cheeses or desserts rather than with salty dishes. Gonzalez Byass is one of the greatest, historical names in Sherry (and Brandy), as well as the largest in Jerez, and the Tio Pepe brand and image one of the icons of Spain, and the best selling Fino in the world stored in an impressive solera of 30,000 botas. Moreover, it’s one of the few large Sherry companies still family-owned and managed. (LG)
Walnut, halva, raisin and buckwheat honey notes are layered, backed by hints of bitter almond and toasted pecan. Shows good energy for a cream style, with the bitter edge imparting length and cut. (JM)
