These new wines give us a brilliant range of traditional Sherries as well as some unique wines that will really excite consumers and help bring the category to an ever greater audience.
Late Harvest Chenin Blanc (dessert Wine) Bibendum has launched its first exclusive Sherries for more than a decade. The nine new wines are sourced from three producers: Lustau in Jerez, Bodegas Delgado Zuleta from Sanlucar de Barrameda and Bodegas Alvear from Montilla-Moriles.
Cabernet Shiraz India Stuart Grundy, Director of Buying for the northern hemisphere, said: “We had been looking for the right partnership for a long time and then, rather like London buses, three fantastic opportunities came along at once. What is particularly pleasing is the way the producers complement each other. Lustau brings the very best of Jerez including the superb La Ina brand; Delgado Zuleta, with its Rodriguez La Cave label, is one of the finest producers of Manzanilla; and Alvear makes incredible, unique wines that really showcase the brilliance of the Montilla-Moriles region.” Bibendum’s partnership with Lustau sees it take over distribution of three established brands that Lustau acquired from Domecq in 2008: La Ina Fino, Botaina Dry Amontillado and Rio Viejo Dry Oloroso. The Fino solera that produces La Ina was founded in 1919 in the shadow of the Great War, and Lustau have continued to produce this brilliant wine just as it has always been done, using the original 94-year-old solera.
