The Oddbins Take

If you're of a certain age you may remember a time when Cream Sherries ruled Britannia. You couldn't step into any licensed premises without seeing someone sipping a thick brown liquid out of a weird eggcup sized wine glass, sophisticated ay? If you're of a different age, that may have sounded like your Grandad regaling you with tales of wind-up televisions or whatever. Apostles is of the same idea as Cream Sherry, in that an aged sherry is lightly sweetened but that's really where the comparison end. A graceful Palo Cortado is blended with a powerful Pedro Ximenez and aged for more than 30 years. The wine is breath-taking, with concentrated dried fruit aromas combing with notes of caramel and mature wood. If wines like this keep coming over from Jerez, there's a good chance Sherry will conquer the UK once more.
