Sherryweek 2020 : Gonzalez Byass 1847 Cream

A cream sherry is a sweet sherry, a mixed type of sherry made with 75% Palomino grapes and 25% Pedro Ximénez grapes. It’s the sweetest sherry which still contains Palomino grapes. 

Gonzalez Byass 1847 Cream is in my opinion a sherry you really need to taste. It still has the typical nuttiness of a Palomino sherry, but the edge is softened by the sweet sundried PX grapes. It’s a dark and sophisticated sherry, aged for nine years. It’s soft and silky with lots of raisin and fig aromas. 

A cream sherry is the perfect companion for desserts and pates. It matches excellent with warm apple pie. In that same flavour-direction and with a little help from my foodblogging wife, we paired this sherry with homemade sugarfree apple beignets. You can find the recipe of this delicious dessert on our foodblog Tineke’s Cucina.

Easy Apero? Cream sherry is a perfect longdrink-mix with Ritchie Pompelmoes (grapefruit soda).
