Named after a famous Spanish victory over Napoleón in 1808, this is an excellent example of Oloroso. The word means "fragrant" and it certainly is. Flor yeasts do not appear on Oloroso wines so they are fortified straight away and aged oxidatively from the start. This imparts a warm Brown color and generous bouquet to the wine.
