- In stock, ready to ship
PRODUCER: Tracing its roots back to 1830 and still a family run bodega, El Maestreo Sierra prides itself on it's use of the traditional methods of hand siphoning, gravity settling and the use of incredibly old barrels to produce it's unique sherries. Some of their practices (and the resulting wines) sit outside the normal rules for sherry, but the Consejo Regulador recognises the unique nature of the wines and grants them exceptions.
WINEMAKING: Old barrels are partially filled with base wine and fortified up to 18% to prevent the development of the film-forming yeasts. The is then matured for fifteen years in a solera system of 500 litre American oak barrels after which the wine is bottled unfiltered, undergoing just some gentle cold stabilization.
TASTING NOTE: The nose displays layers of caramel, coffee, toffee, chocolate, prunes, and toasted almonds, while the palate is bone dry. This complexity is the result of centuries of tradition: a truly artisanal Sherry of incomparable depth.
