TASTING NOTES
Appearance: The colour is of old gold with hints of amber.
Nose: Its aromas are outstandingly complex, with bitter and nutty hints, sharp, marine memories and a background of patisserie, glacé fruit, and nougat with memories of an apothecary’s shop.
Taste: A round and light entrance to the mouth it leads you to think it will be smooth, but when sensed by our taste buds we find it sharp, saline with a bitter almond aftertaste.

PAIRING
Along with the Oloroso wine, this is perhaps one of the most versatile. For an aperitif: it can be combined with Iberian pork productscured ham, cured loin of ham- or nuts such as fried almonds. For starters and main dishes: with salted fish such as Mojama, Maruca and mildly smoked fish such as Palometaor smoked cod.
