Oloroso Seco Faraon is aged oxidatively for several years in butts of American oak. The grapes are sourced exclusively from our own vineyards in Balbaina and Miraflores. Matured in casks of American oak in a “solera” or “fractional blending” system, in the coastal town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, maturation is an oxidative process; no flor grows since the wine is fortified after vinification. Then follows an average of seven years of ageing in cask, to give a dry and wonderfully complex wine.
Intensely rich with pervading walnut aromas. The palate is dry,intense, rich and deep with a long and powerful flavour. Dried figs, raisins, toffee and coffee, as well as orange peel, and a salty note on the nose. The palate was full and balanced, between a citrus and caramel character.
