Grapes are sourced exclusively from vineyards in Balbaina and Miraflores, and only the free run juice is used for Oloroso Faraon. 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 pervading walnut.

Taste: Dry, intense, rich and deep with a long and powerful flavour.

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