THE WINERY

Bodegas Argüeso is a historic Sherry producer reborn and revived. Located in coastal Sanlucar de Barrameda, it was founded by León de Argüeso y Argüeso in 1822. Originally from Burgos in the North of Spain, he settled in Sanlúcar where he opened a small grocery store called Almacén del Reloj.  Shortly after, he acquired an old solera from the bodega San José in Santo Domingo, with an estimated age of over 250 years.

In 2016, Argüeso was acquired by Bodegas Yuste, with a view to increasing the reputation of the wines.  They have invested heavily in Argüeso, including the employment of their own team of in-house coopers who have been tasked with repairing and upgrading all the barrels within the company as it returns to its former glory. Every week owner Francisco Yuste tastes from each barrel to ensure that his are among the finest sherry wines and vinegars in Spain.

The complexity of the Amontillado from Sanlúcar together with the fragrance of the best oloroso sherries is what you will find in this Palo Cortado sherry from Herederos de Argüeso. Directly selected from the criaderas and soleras, we find biological ageing notes and tertiary aromas from its long ageing in centennial casks.

TASTING NOTES

Amber in colour with a shiny glaze. On the nose, this palo cortado has notes of dried toasted nuts and balsamic touches that remind you of a fine pice of wood. In the mouth is dry, intense, strong, rounded with lots of body.

FOOD PAIRING

This is a versatile wine, perfect with red meats, grill fish dishes and classic stews. Perfect pairing to charcuterie, cured and smoked cheeses but also with chocolate desserts. With an average age of 20 years, once opened you can keep this sherry for a long period.Serve slightly chilled.
