Made exclusively from hand-picked Palomino grapes. Only the must from the first pressing is used; it is aged 5–6 years. The result is a Sherry with a pungent bouquet and a perfect balance between fruit flor (a yeast that develops in the casks) and oak. Serve it chilled with almonds olives and shellfish and bring the taste of Spain to your home.

Named to commemorate Spain's 16th c. naval victory over the Ottoman fleet, this is a real powerhouse brandy: amber, with flavors of raisins and prunes giving way to nutty cola notes and a slight burst of hot pepper in the long finish.

Tasting Notes:

The wine has a classic fino nose of raw and toasted almonds, nut shells, lemon and orange rind, dried apples and pears, and white cheese rind, along with the salty sea notes that depict vigorous flor growth in a fino Sherry. The mouth has orange and lemon, as well as other citrus. The wine almost seems sweet (don’t worry, it’s not) with marcona almonds in the fairly lengthy, balanced, and almost gentle finish. Drink fresh, chilled from a recently opened bottle.
