Description

Brilliant mahogany lights up the glass and prepares you for an alluring toasted hazelnut aroma.

from 100% Palomino aged for 12 years in bota, this is a very silky and fine Oloroso with a luscious feel in the mouth. Orange peel gives a pronounced freshness to complement a backbone of brooding, nutty flavours.

On the end the solera comes to the fore leaving a vanilla and cigar box finish which is persistent and long. The perfect accompaniment with game or after a meal with or without cheese.

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.
