Tasting Note

Dark gold in colour with expressive aromas of dried fruits & nuts and a great concentration. A rich and mellow wine, with immense flavours of smoked wood, prunes and bitter chocolate. Complex, smooth and warming with a lingering aftertaste.

Winemaking

The Carrascal vineyard is planted exclusively with the Palomino Fino variety. The average age of the vines is 15-20 years, this average is maintained through frequent replantings to ensure the vines stay at their productive peak, with a planting density of 4,000vines\ha. The vines are pruned in the traditional 'stick and thumb' method (vara y pulga) and face due south to the sea to benefit from on-shore breezes that cool and bring humidity to the vines.

After hand harvesting the grapes into small plastic buckets the bunches are transferred to the winery for pressing. The resulting liquid is fermented at warm temperatures (around 25 degrees) for around 12 days to give a fairly neutral, dry base wine at around 11% alcohol. This base wine is then classified and only a small part of the harvest is deemed to be of exceptional quality to enter into this special solera. This base wine is fortified up to 20% and then spends 15 years ageing oxidatively passing through the solera and criadera system.

Food Recommendation

Ideal with Patés, especially game patés, smoked duck and other smoked meats and aged manchego.
