23.12.16 Williams & Humbert Launch Canasta 20 Years Old VOS

Canasta is the leading Cream Sherry brand in the Spanish market and now there is a special version. The normal Canasta is made from grapes from Balbaina and Carrascal. The resulting wines are then blended and aged as a blend in solera for over 6 years. The new VOS is simply the same wine but aged for a minimum of 20 years and bottled en rama. The recommended retail price for Spain is 25 euros. The 50cl bottle is in the same style as the other W&H VOS and VORS wines and while the presentation has been simplified it is very stylish and elegant. There are very few old Cream Sherries around, so this one is well worth seeking out.
