This is a rich and enticing mahogany brown colour, as is typical of Oloroso style sherries that are aged in direct contact with the air, rather than under a layer of flor (wild yeast). Smooth and harmonious, with burnt chocolate and clove notes in its long, nutty finish. Sublime with figs, nuts and manchego cheese.
Was founded in 1927, by the current owner’s grandfather Antonio José, in the renowned Sierra de Montilla region, in Andalusia, southern Spain. In the winery it was Francisco, the father of Pilar, that introduced technological improvements, and started with the use of American oak. These days it is still very much a family concern, and many of the old artisan traditions are still maintained, helping to produce top class sherries and wines.
