Product Description

Patricia Aragon Cream shows a rich, dark mahogany color with an iodine-like tint. A sweeter wine made by adding a small amount of sweet PX wine to a dry "oloroso" base, the nose shows dried fruits (raisins, prunes, figs) along with toffee and toasty honey-like components. On the palate, it's rich, thick and smooth with a taste of raisins, toffee and candied orange peel.
An ideal companion to desserts, it is meant to be served slightly chilled or on the rocks.

"A blend of Oloroso and PX. Medium amber in color with fruity aromas of orange marmalade, and creme brulee. Soft, sweet mouth feel. Nice blend of citrus, caramel and ripe figs."

Winery: Patricia

The Patricia Estate
The company Aragón y Cía. was founded in 1946, but the winery itself has been in operation since at least 1877. A prize awarded at the Córdoba wine exhibition of that year documents that the winery was producing wine at that date, and it's more than likely that the installations were in operation well before 1877. Situated in Lucena in the province of Córdoba, the Aragón cellars hold some 2,500 "botas" (500 liter oak barrels) using the "solera" system to convert fresh white wine from Pedro Ximénez grapes into the typical "finos", "amontillados" and "olorosos" of Montilla-Moriles.

Patricia Vineyards
As is the case with most Montilla-Moriles producers, Aragón is an ageing cellar and does not own vineyards. The vineyards of the region are mainly Pedro Ximénez (PX) grapes (over 80%). The region's dry hot climate allows the naturally high sugar PX grapes to attain up to 17º alcohol potential. This means the wines produced here do not generally require the addition of alcohol (fortification), which is necessary for sherries. Aragón's expert tasters carefully select fresh, recently fermented PX wines, which are then transferred to the cellars for long periods of "solera" ageing.
Montilla-Moriles in the province of Cordoba, in Andalucía. The D.O spreads over 10,200 hectares (25,194 acres) of vines planted on limestone soils, at 300-600 meters above seal level.
Kysela Pere et Fils, LTD imports three styles of their Patricia sherry: Fino, Amontillado and Cream (the Cream is more like a P.X. Reserve).
