Description

Deep amber in colour with an orange rim, pronounced aromas of walnuts, marmalade and sultanas leap from the glass.

Made from 90% Oloroso (Palomino) and 10% Pedro Ximénez with 5 years together in bota, the sweet and savoury blend is in perfect harmony. A zinging bitter orange freshness is replaced by fried corn and biscuit on the finish.

The texture is velvety, but not overly rich. Beautifully layered with apricots, walnuts and a ringing finish that is tangy and fresh. Serve chilled before or after a meal.

Jerez was one of the first wine growing regions in Spain to distinguish their wines through the provenance of the grapes. However, in the second half of the 20th century all the focus went to the bodega and the solera system, with local enologists claiming that the identity of the soil and grapes became unrecognisable following maturation in bota (barrel). Today things are changing, a new wave of winemakers are determined to put the soil and the fruit back in the spotlight, producing wine that clearly reflects the vines’ terroir alongside the solera in which it matured: wine that proves that whilst quality and consistency are achieved through the bodega, excellence is in the soil. We love fresh, floral and fruit driven wine. All our biologically aged wine can be traced back to the soil where the grapes were grown.
