The grapes are from Carrascal, Macharnudo and Lomo Pardo Pagos, three estate vineyards comprised predominately of Albariza soil.

On the palate it is powerful, round and full-bodied. This Oloroso has toasted hazelnut, dried orange peel, cardamom spice and savory balsamic note that leads to an elegant dry finish.
How to enjoy it: Serve chilled in a white wine glass. Pair with braised beef stew, rosemary encrusted leg of lamb, Osso Bucco, chorizo and chicken paella, grilled duck breast or roasted pork loin with fig sauce.
