Harveys celebrates Sherry Fever

Launches 12 Year Old Signature By Harveys

Sherry, one of the most illustrious fortified wines, renowned for its variety, unique taste and rich Spanish heritage, is having a revival. Sherry bars have opened up across cities from London to New York introducing younger consumers to what was once seen as a traditional tipple.

Harveys, the UK’s No 1 sherry brand is best placed to take full advantage of the current revival. Harveys lovingly crafts distinctive and unique sherries from its own vineyards in its home in Jerez, southern Spain. Here, award-winning wine maker Manuel J. Valcarcel is perpetuating the brand’s unrivalled expertise and sherry excellence. This autumn, Harveys is proud to unveil a new addition to its prestigious range: Signature by Harveys, a new premium 12 Year Old cream sherry with a rich, full-bodied flavour which is bound to appeal to UK sherry lovers.

Harveys wine maker Manuel J. Valcarcel comments, “It’s exciting to see that sherry is having a revival globally. We are very proud of Signature by Harveys. This authentic and traditional sherry blend was developed following consumer demand in the UK for richer, sophisticated flavours.”

Signature by Harveys is a rare sherry blend and has been aged for an average of 12 years. The wine has a warm bronze colour and a balance of flavours and aromas including sweet spice, hazelnut and rich dried fruits. The new sherry can be savoured chilled over ice as an apéritif, shared amongst friends with tapas dishes such as spicy patatas bravas, or alongside sweet treats and cheese.

Signature by Harveys is beautifully packaged in an elegant bottle, reflecting the finesse and complexity of the wine and making it the ideal gift for sherry enthusiasts.

Peter Morrell, editor of AboutMyGeneration commented: “Sherry is one of the world’s most underrated drinking pleasures. The clever blending of aperitif and dessert sherries is a double pleasure that can be enjoyed on its own or throughout a meal. With Christmas upcoming this would make the ideal gift for the discerning drinker.

Signature by Harveys – 80% Palomino, 20% Pedro Ximénez – (19% ABV) – 50cl RRP £11.99 available at Tesco stores nationwide from October 2014
