Canasta Cream is a generoso wine produced by Bodegas Williams & Humbert in Jerez de la Frontera (Cádiz) within D.O. Jerez-Xérès-Sherry.

The history of the Bodegas Williams & Humbert wineries started almost 130 years ago. It was founded in 1877 by Sir. Alexander Williams and Arthur Humbert. They were involved in the creation of the Jerez-Xérès-Brandy Denomination of Origin, and to this day, the winery is recognised as one of the most prestigious producers in the world.

The Bodegas Williams & Humbert wineries are located in the triangle formed by Jérez de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa María and Sanlúcar de Barrameda. This triangle is characterised by a peculiar microclimate, made up of the rivers Guadalquivir and Guadalete, called ‘the Mesopotamian valley’ of western Andalusia.

Currently, Williams & Humbert is the largest winery in Europe, and its distributor, Sovisur, distributes all its products together with wines from other denominations such as Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Rueda or Rías Baixas.

Canasta Cream is a wine made with Palomino and Pedro Ximénez from vineyards located in the farms Balbaína and Carrascal. They are between 20 and 60 years old and are planted on the typical ‘albariza’, white calcareous soils.

After the manual harvest, with a grape selection in the vineyard, the light pressings are selected and fermented at a controlled temperature. Then, they are fortified to 19.5% vol. alc. Once the Palomino and Pedro Ximénez, which have remained static (sobretablas), have been mixed, the wine is aged for at least 6 years with the ‘criaderas’ and ‘soleras’ system. The sugar content is 132 gr/l.

Pictures and situation Williams & Humbert
Sherry and wines from Jerez are probably Spain’s biggest contribution to the world of wine. Unique and special, there is nothing else like them in the world. A great diversity of Sherry wine is produced in DO Jerez-Sherry-Manzanilla de Sanlúcar, everything from sweet wines to fortified wines. Sweet wines are divided between Pedro Ximénez and Moscatel, depending on the variety used during production. Concerning fortified wines, there is a large range including Finos, Amontillado, Manzanilla, Oloroso, Medium, Cream and Palo Cortado, classified depending on the result of the ageing process under the ´velo flor´. A unique trait of these wines is the ageing process using the Solera Method, a system using various barrels from different vintages. The system uses stacked barrels, where a portion of a barrel’s contents is extracted and mixed with the lower barrel, with the barrel then filled with the contents of the upper barrel. Thus, the new wine is gradually coming to be thanks to the age of the rest of the content of screeds.
