Grape: Palomino Fino grown on “albariza” soil in Pago del Hornillo, Sanlucar de Barrameda.
Development and ageing: 13 barrel “criadera” system
“Sacas”: Once a year
Bodega: Sanlúcar de Barrameda, Calle Trasbolsa, 35.
Tasting notes: Amber coloured amontillado, very dry and intense with toasted almond notes and a hint of sea and smoke.
An amontillado from Sanlúcar derived from Manzanilla Pasada – the first phase of a 12 year biological maturation process, during which the “velo de flor” gives way to an oxidation stage over time.
