The name Aurora has a long history in Sanlúcar de Barrameda, dating back to the introduction of this wine in 1907. It refers to Aurora Ambrosse Lacave, the wife of Pedro Romero and the owner of the bodega after the death of her husband in 1911. She was a pioneering female executive in the sherry trade. The fact that a woman was running a winery over a hundred years in Southern Spain, does give more singularity to this brand and a source of inspiration to many women.

Aurora Oloroso, unlike Amontillado or Manzanilla sherry, is fortified at an early stage with wine spirit of about 17% alcohol. This inhibits the growth of flor – the yeast crust that gives other sherries their characteristic yeasty flavour. The Oloroso is then put into the solera system where it ages oxidatively, taking on the dried fruit characteristics of this wine. Put simply, the solera system is a process whereby aged wine is blended with younger wine to produce a harmonious and consistent product.

Aurora Oloroso, in the glass is a deep mahogany fading to amber. On the nose there is an intense but fresh aroma of toasted nuts with a sweet, savoury salted caramel edge. On the palate the wine is well-rounded, dry and with clean acidity; further flavours of walnuts and almonds with a citrus tang and hints of leather. In the background is a briny lick characteristic of any sherry from Sanlucar de Barrameda.


Can be drunk either as an aperitif with olives or as a digestif with desserts or ideally with nuts, cheeses and fig and almond cake. Please note: this is a dry Oloroso sherry.

How to cook with Oloroso Aurora Sherry

This is a quick one pan recipe using Secreto Ibérico pork, pan fried until pink and served with lightly caramelised figs and a reduction of aged oloroso sherry. The caramelised figs add sweetness to the secreto pork, whilst the sticky oloroso reduction gives depth and balance to the dish. A great tapas dish that will impress any Spanish food lover out there.
