The Wine
The V.O.R.S. products represent a selection of Barbadillo’s finest wines originating from their oldest criaderas.  These are true oenological jewels that are meticulously analysed and controlled by a committee of experts before being awarded the unique V.O.R.S. rating. Complex aromas revealing leather, roasted coffee, vanilla and the old wood of the soleras. On the palate, it is smooth and warm in the mouth with nuances of walnut and pastries.

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.
