This is a very interesting and unusual wine in two ways. Firstly it is Sherry from a specific vintage, something very rare in an area where the solera system which blends out vintage variations dominates. To ensure no wine from other years can be added, the Consejo Regulador applies official wax seals to each butt. Secondly the must is only partially fermented leaving residual sugars before fortification and racking into the butts where it homogenises beautifully. No Pedro Ximénez is added.

Deep amber with golden highlights and a certain viscosity
Aromas of raisins, orange blossom, marmalade and a very slightly spicy note from the oak
Full bodied, sweet and richly textured with those oak and orange notes to the fore with faint traces of nuts.
