Produced according to the traditional methods. The ageing method used for all sherries is known as the solera system which consists of a continuous blending of young sherries with older ones resulting in a sherry of consistent quality.

Matured in solera, in casks of American oak in the sherry town of Sanlucar de Barrameda. The maturation is first 'biological', i.e. under a veil of yeast or flor followed by the 'oxidative' process, which begins as the yeast dies off due to lack of nutrients available in the Sherry. Then follows several (over thirty years) of ageing in cask, to give a dry, complex wine.Wines of such age are designated VORS, (Very Old Rare Sherry).

Aroma: Intensely rich hazelnut, beeswax.

Taste: Dry, very nutty, full bodied.

A pungent aperitif, but also great with many foods: Tapas, soup, dry cheeses and even beef.
