Cream, Medium Cream y Pale Cream
Blends, or cabeceo wines, are sherries that come from the combination of an originally dry wine and a naturally sweet wine or rectified concentrated must. Different types of blends are distinguished by their sugar content and the type of wine used in their production. Learn more!
Cream tends to be commonly known as a ‘sweet Oloroso’ since it’s made from a mixture of Oloroso, which undergoes oxidative aging, and a sweet wine, usually Pedro Ximénez.
Medium Cream is closely related but not as sweet and is usually made from Amontillado and Pedro Ximénez. However, it’s really defined by its sugar content, which must be between 5 and 115 grams per litre.
