Para celebrar el Día Europeo del Enoturismo, Discover Sherry y el Hotel Pinomar organizamos una cata con vinos de la Bodega González Obregón y tapas preparadas por el equipo de Discover Sherry.

 To celebrate European Enotourism Day, Discover Sherry and the Hotel Pinomar hosted a Sherry wine tasting with wines from the González Obregón winery.  The tapas were provided by the Discover Sherry team.

Diapositiva7Tuvimos un invitado muy especial,  Alejandro Narváez de la Bodega Forlong, que nos habló del los jereces de El Puerto.  Alejandro es hijo de Colette y Antonio que son miembros del equipo de Discover Sherry y junto a Rocío Aspera elaboran Vinos de la Tierra en su Bodega de Forlong.

We had a very special guest speaker, Alejandro Narváez, from the Forlong winery.  He talked to us about the Sherry wines that are produced in El Puerto.  He is the son of Colette and Antonio who are both members of the Discover Sherry team.  Alejandro and Rocio Aspera are the creators of local wines that are produced at the Forlong winery in El Puerto.

Fue una presentación muy interesante.  Alejandro nos habló de las tipicidades de los vinos de El Puerto.  Nos contó que son vinos de carácter intermedio entre los vinos de Jerez y los de Sanlúcar de Barrameda,  que tienen suavidad de Manzanilla y cuerpo de Jerez, y cómo demuestran el Terruño debido a su carácter salino.

It was a very interesting presentation, since Alejandro spoke about the unique characteristics of the wines that are made in El Puerto.  He told us that the El Puerto Sherry wines possess the smoothness of Manzanilla wines, which are produced in Sanlúcar, and the body of  Fino Sherries that are produced in Jerez.  This he attributed to the saline character of the soils that make up the El Puerto “terroir.”

Después de la presentación Alejandró nos contó la historia de la Bodega González Obregón y nos fue presentando los vinos que se degustaron y que armonizaron de maravilla con las tapas que estaban riquísimas.  Con el mosto y el fino servimos Sushi: California roll, Maki de salmón, Goma Wakame,  Cecina y chorizo de León y Dobladillo de Cádiz.

After the presentation, Alejandro talked about the history of the González Obregón winery and he presented each wine as it was perfectly paired with the wonderful tapas that were served.  With the mosto and the Fino Sherry we served some Sushi:  California roll, Salmon Maki, Goma Wakame; some cecina and chorizo sausages from León, and a unique tuna sandwich called Dobladillo de Cadiz.

Con el amontillado, Banderillas y Espárrago sobre  salsa mexicana, y con el oloroso, Rollito Villeroy y Garbanzos con espinacas a la sevillana.

With the Amontillado sherry, we served banderillas and esparagus with Mexican salsa, and with the Oloroso sherry we served a Villeroy roll and garbanzo beans with  spinach which is a typical dish in Seville.

El cream se pudo saborear con una exquisita Sopa de coco y lima, con canastitas de Paté con cebolla caramelizada y queso crema con jalea de chiles rojos, y con una Brocheta de frutas al arrope.

The cream sherry was harmonized with an exquisite coconut and lime soup; small pastry tarts filled with Paté and carmelized onions, and with cream cheese and red chile jelly.  There was also a fruit brochette drizzled with a wine reduction sauce.

Finalmente el PX  con Choco-glass con crema de mango,  “Peanut  butter cup-cakes” y el helado de vainilla que no puede faltar ya que con un poco de PX por encima es uno de los postres más exquisitos que hay.  Tanto los vinos de la Bodega Obregón como las tapas del Equipo Discover Sherry fueron un exitazo total.

Lastly, we tasted the Pedro Ximenez sherry in a chocolate cup topped with a mango cream sauce; peanut butter cupcakes; and vanilla ice cream.  The latter is a must-have since vanilla ice cream with a bit of Pedro Ximenez sherry covering is one of the best desserts that exist in this world.  All of the Obregón wines, along with  all of the Discover Sherry team tapas, were an indisputable hit.
