100% Palomino Fino aged in the Solera process from Jerez, Andalucia, Spain.
ABOUT: To create an Oloroso the base wine will be fortified to 17 or 18 degrees which makes it impossible for flor yeasts to survive in these casks. Due to evaporation known as merma (about 3-5% in volume each year), the resulting Oloroso will grow more concentrated and around 20-24 degrees.
VINIFICATION: 100% Palomino Fino aged oxidatively in solera for an average of five years before bottling. Oloroso is aged in the absence of flor, in an oxidative way and starts from a selection of heavier, more full-structured musts than a Fino or Manzanilla.
TASTING NOTES: Very fragrant and intense, with lots of polished wood and dried fruits. Almonds and walnuts. On the palate, flavors of Caramel coated nuts, raisins and a similar hint of cherries and other mature fruits. Some spicy notes from the wood, as well as traces of salinity.
FOOD PAIRING: Pair this Sherry with Sirloin Steak or other hearty dishes like traditional Stews for a sensory experience; this Oloroso will also pair beautifully with Aged/Mature Cheese & Nuts.
