Product Code: ESMW176

Availability: In stock



Country: Spain, Jerez

Tasting Notes: Alfonso is a dry oloroso with a minimum of 8 years in American oak cask following the traditional Solera system. Due to its time in contact with oxygen Alfonso shows a golden amber colour. On the nose round intense aromas with the nuttiness of the Palomino variety standing out, in this case hazelnuts and walnuts. As a result of the time spent in cask Alfonso shows subtle aromas of oak and spiced notes which remind of truffle or leather. On the palate flavourful and structured with a long and complex aftertaste and slight vanilla touches with a surprising sweet note on the finish.

Varietal: 100% Palomino Fino

Pairing: Alfonso should be served slightly chilled between 10 and 12ºC in a small white wine glass.Perfect with rich meat stews, cured meats and beef/goose consommé. The dryness of this wine makes it perfect for gelatinous meats such as oxtail and pork cheeks.
