About this deal

While Cream is a term used to describe a sweet style of sherry, Pale Cream – as the name suggests – is defined by its delicate, pale colour.

With a great marketing vision, this entrepreneur named these sweet wines from the south of Spain “Bristol Milk”, because they were offered as the best possible food for newborn babies and mothers of young children. Many other wineries imitated it, adding their own pale creams to their offer, but none of them ever managed to beat Croft Original. In the finish, this wine from the wine-growing region of Andalusia finally inspires with considerable length. Pale gold and bright in colour, Croft Original has a rich, smooth, delicately sweet palate with an intense, aromatic finish.

It is possible to book tours of the winery owned by Gonzalez Byass, producers of Croft, in Croft’s hometown of Jerez, Spain. You couldn’t possibly imagine a true English gentleman drinking this kind of wine in the social club with the rest of his friends, could you? It may not be reproduced in any way whatsoever without the prior consent of Waitrose Limited nor without due acknowledgement.

Once the grapes are harvested, sherry production starts life like any white wine – with the grapes pressed and fermented. It can be enjoyed as an aperitif with snacks, as a delicious alternative to dessert wine or simply on its own. It may not be reproduced in any way whatsoever without Ocado Limited's prior consent, nor without due acknowledgement.

A Croft is iconic in both taste and heritage – and that racing green bottle slots just as perfectly into the fridge today as it always did. Croft Original is a blend of the pale dryness of a quality Fino with the added depth and body of a Cream. Pale and delicate, Croft Sherry is refreshingly crisp with an aromatic finish that makes it easy to serve – and even easier to drink. Croft Original should be kept in the fridge, ready for when you want to treat yourself to a chilled glass, or on hand to serve to friends when they drop by.
