Fernando de Castilla

Oloroso Antique
Jerez de la Frontera
This sherry is made from the native grape, Palomino Fino which comes from older vines on the estate vineyard “Pago Balbaino” of white albariza soils containing 70-80% limestone. The wine is fortified early on in the winemaking process with grape spirit so that the cap of ‘flor’ yeast doesn’t grow (as in fino sherry) and it undergoes oxidative ageing. It is aged for 30 years using the soleras and criaderas system. It is a complex sherry, with aromas such as dry fruit, hazelnuts, chocolate and sweet spices . The sherry’s concentration gives it a very pure, almost saline finish on the palate which make the sherry incredibly appetizing. A beautiful sherry to serve with nuts or aged cheeses.
