Tasting notes
Like all Amontillados, this Sherry was aged as a Fino until realizing it was destined to become something different, and the Flor began to disappear. Then having been fortified to 18% alcohol to withstand the oxidative process for an additional five years aging in a Solera that is nearly 200 years old! This wine displays aromas of raisin, dark chocolate, leather, tree bark with some smoky notes. In the mouth, it is clean and fresh with flavors of citrus and nuts.

Review
Musky, black tea nose (some floral notes surface). Silky on the palate and creamy, nutty finish. Constant interplay of savory and sweet. Fresh. An impressive Amontillado. Melissa Sutherland 23 Nov 2011

Wine maker notes
The Gutierrez Colosia family has been making Sherry in the El Puerto de Santa Maria area of Jerez since 1838. Juan Carlos Gutierrez Colosia, the current owner and manager of the bodega, preserves the beautiful style of these fine wines. The bodega is located on the river Guadalete which provides a perfect climate for the Solera, maintaining the ideal temperature and humidity for the aging of Sherry. In addition to the age-old traditions, his vineyards sit on the beach with the gentle sea breezes imparting a special personality to the wines.
