8.4.16 Williams & Humbert Launch More Añadas
A limited edition of W&H vintage Sherries has been launched following their bottling in February. The range consists of the 2009 and 2012 Finos and Olorosos from 2003, 2009 and 2012 with a 2003 Amontillado. The Oloroso 2001 has already been available for a while. This is fantastic news.
W&H have been experimenting with vintage Fino since 2001 and the 2006, the first to be marketed, has 7 years of static ageing under flor and has met with much acclaim. It is difficult to do without losing the flor, but the result is amazing, and bottled en rama. It won IWC Gold and 93 Parker points.
Don Guido Williams began setting aside wine to be aged as vintage in 1920 and the firm has kept up the tradition and still has stocks of all these vintages, which are used by the Consejo Regulador as reference points in assessing the age of wines.
