Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Matusalem Cream Oloroso Dulce VORS is a generous wine made with Palomino Fino and Pedro Ximénez varieties, with over 30 years of ageing in the traditional Jerez system of criadera and soleras, produced by González Byass.

González Byass is the quintessential Jerez winery. Founded in 1835, the first export to London was made that same year; an exporting spirit that is still alive today, since 70% of its production is sold outside of Spain.

Olorosos Dulces are also calledCream, due to their smoothness, sweetness and creaminess.

VORS in the name tells us the age of a Sherry wine. It is an acronym that means "Very Old Rare Sherry", and refers to a wine that has an average age of over 30 years.

The grapes forMatusalem Cream Oloroso Dulce VORS are harvested by hand and pressed once they reach the cellar. The extracted must is fermented and the wine is fortified by adding wine alcohol, and it then undergoes ageing in the system of criaderas and soleras in 550 litre American oak barrels. The Cream is the result of the mixture of an Oloroso, Dry Generous Wine, with a Natural Sweet Wine, usually Pedro Ximénez. Each variety’s wines are combined after 4 years and then aged together until they exceed 30 years.

Matusalem Cream Oloroso Dulce VORS is an exceptional wine that perfectly combines an Oloroso, a dry generous wine, and a Pedro Ximénez, a Natural Sweet Wine. It has intense aromas of nuts, dates, raisins, honey, and the oxidative character of oloroso. On the palate it is elegant and velvety, complex and concentrated. It is balanced thanks to its sweetness and alcohol. Lingering and intense.

This important company from Andalusia, owned by the González family, from Jeréz, has always been linked to the world of alcoholic beverages since 1835, and is one of the most prestigious and well-known sherry wineries in the world. Their almost 180 years of experience support their good work and deep knowledge in this sector. Wisdom, combined with an open minded approach, allows them to strengthen the current business, harvest after harvest, and to project a sustained growth in order to remain competitive in the difficult and changing current market.
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.
