1930 Williams & Humbert Jerez-Xérès-Sherry Amoroso Londres - Spain, Andalucía, Jerez-Xérès-Sherry (7/10/2021)
Decanted about an hour before service. Color was a clear walnut brown, although there was a fair amount of sediment to be decanted off. On opening, the palate was a lot of caramel with nice acidity and an off-dry level of sweetness.
After an hour, sweetness started coming on with stronger acidity, putting this into the “cream sherry” category, but not super sweet. The scent and flavor of coconut was evident, which is something I’ve never run into before. This made us think that perhaps the wine had originally been sweetened with some sort of fruit juice. Overall, a really nice wine. (90 pts.)
