WHAT MAKES THIS WINE UNIQUE?Produced, aged and bottled in Sanlucar de Barrameda, the northwestern most point in the ‘Sherry Triangle’, at the intersection of the Atlantic Ocean and the Guadalquivir river.
PAIRING SUGGESTIONS:Serve chilled in a white wine glass as an ideal aperitif with seared sesame encrusted tuna, miso glazed seabass, sautéed shrimp, steamed mussels, fried oysters or spicy jambalaya. The benefits of the proximity to the sea are threefold; the coastal influence mitigates the harshness of both summer and winter, provides natural humidity encouraging prolific flor growth and imparts delicate saline note.
VINIFICATION AND AGEING:Complexity is achieved through biological ageing process for 4 years under flor in traditional 500 liter American oak casks within the Criadera and Solera system.
TASTING NOTES:Sea air in a glass. Intense aromatics of green apple, preserved orange peel, chamomile tea and toasted hazelnuts. On the palate the salinity is balance with flavors of preserved lemon peel, green olive and Marcona almonds.
