Oloroso El Cerro 21%, Viña La Callejuela
Copper tinted amber to mahogany with a slight trace of green at the rim, legs.
Classic Oloroso with a trace of Sanlúcar maritime crispness, clean, generous and open with hints of nutty sweetness, walnut and toasted almond with a touch of cinnamon and vanilla, then traces of polished furniture, but always with just enough of that sweet glyceric note to balance.Very appealing.
Crisp, lively entry then it opens out into a generous glyceric nuttiness but which is always contained by gentle tannins and acidity. Tight and fresh and amazingly long, this is a perfect wine for food as well as lively discussion.
Voted one of the three best wines in Spain and best Fortified by El Mundo Vino, this delightful Oloroso is at least 20 years old and comes from the Blanco brothers' own vineyard which surrounds the bodega just outside Sanlúcar. It is bottled en rama and sealed with a driven cork.
PriceAround 25.00 Euros per 50cl bottle
