The Wine
Mahogany in colour. Pleasant aroma reminiscent of noble oak from its ageing period and dried fruit. Mouth-filling and beautifully dry on the palate. The wines aged using oxidative ageing, such as this oloroso, can remain in perfect organoleptic condition many years after bottling, even once the bottle has been opened.

Barbadillo is one of the most venerable of all sherry producers, certainly the most famous Bodega from the town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda and was founded in 1821 and now farm an impressive 500 hectares, all located in two estates, Gibalbin and Santa Lucia, both of which fall into the Upper Jerez sub-region. They make sherries in all styles, with Manzanilla their flag-ship and the vast majority of the wines undergoing the alchemical process of fractional blending in the Solera system, a process of subtle and gradual ageing and regeneration which underwrites the structural complexity of all the styles. The products of the Soleras are by definition non-vintage, their wines defying chronology through a gradual process of rejuvenation as the youngest butts ( known as criaderas) refresh the older ones (añadas, in a process known rather poetically as ‘running the scales’ ) all the way down to the oldest tier ( known as the solera itself ), which is the source of the final and regular bottlings.
