Farming: Dry Farmed
Region: Jerez - Xérès - Sherry, Spain
Notes: Amontillado of the most pristine kind. Traditional notes of almonds and walnut skin but with a citrus blast and floral lantana like elegance that perfumes the salty toasted notes of dark Cocoa and coffee beans. Incredibly dry, this elegant wine has endless layers and should be consumed over the course of weeks It pairs beautifully with savory dishes such as grilled meats and roasted vegetables, making it a versatile wine for all occasions.
Production: Handpicked early September, two weeks after most farmers, to ensure maximum ripening and highest retention of the chalky albariza soil. The grapes are sourced from all of three vineyard sites and blended for press, fermented in stainless steel and then fortified to 15% before entering into the Solera system to age as a Manzanilla. After more than 7 years aging biologically under flor, the flor loses vigor and dissipates as the wines begins its journey to Amontillado. This wine is then aged oxidatively for an additional average age of 20 years.
