Diatomists Oloroso sherry is the ideal accompaniment for game dishes. Or as a delightful post-meal indulgence, either with or without cheese. Its versatile nature makes it a splendid choice for enhancing a wide variety of culinary experiences.
The name "Diatomists" pays homage to the skilled artisans who master the intricate art of diatom arrangement. Diatoms, single-cell algae, create elaborate glass shells around themselves. Remarkably, five million years ago, the region of Jerez, the birthplace of this exceptional sherry, was submerged underwater.
This unique historical backdrop explains the soil's exceptional richness in diatom fossils, these hidden microscopic marvels essential for the thriving of vines in the region's hot climate, characterised by dry summers and sporadic heavy rainfall. The soil's enhanced porosity, courtesy of diatoms, acts as a reservoir, trapping moisture and providing essential water reserves for the vines during the lengthy and sunny growing season.
