\nProduction: Bud musts from our best vineyards. Cold, still decanting, followed by fermentation at 22¼ C. Early filtering, classification by quality and then fortified at 15¼ with the best distilled wines before going on to the racks. Put into the classical Jerez Criaderas y Soleras system of dynamic ageing in the 12th criadera, where the biological ageing takes place under a layer of yeast. Traditional oak casks, preferably American, with capacities of 30 and 36 @. Aged for at least 8 years, after which it is transferred to the 3rd criadera for an additional 4 years of natural ageing by oxidation until it reaches the solera. It is then removed for consumption. \n \nTasting notes: Brilliant hues of old gold and amber. Pungent, intense and complex on the nose, with a subtle note of the fino sherry it had once been and a hint of dried nuts and filberts. Dry, with excellent acidity; a long, full-bodied and elegant palate. A delightfully expressive and unforgettable finish. \n \nSuggestions for consumption: An excellent aperitif and perfect with cheese, ham or seafood.
