A favorite of La Tienda owner Don Harris: "Fino Sherry from Gutiérrez Colosía is a wonderfully light crisp wine produced in a boutique bodega along the shores of El Puerto de Santa María by our friend, winemaker Juan Carlos who really loves his calling."
Produced by Bodegas Gutierrez Colosia, this pale golden Fino sherry is dry and light on the palate with a delicate almond aroma. Aged for at least 3 years, the elegant nutty aromas of this light sherry pair well with a wide array of tapas. Serve it chilled with a plate of Serrano ham, olives and Marcona almonds for a refreshing treat.
COMPOSITION: 100% Palomino
ABOUT THE PRODUCER:
For nearly 200 years, Bodegas Gutierrez Colosia has grown grapes for sherry in the city of El Puerto de Santa Maria. Located in the province of Cadiz, El Puerto de Santa Maria's unique micro-climate is the perfect environment needed for aging sherry and developing the "flor" layer of yeast that gives sherry its unique taste and aroma.
Bodegas Gutierrez Colosia was founded in 1838 on the mouth of the Guadalete river. The climate and ocean winds here create an ideal environment for the aging of the Bodega's wines.
Traditionally they sold their sherry supply to larger sherry houses who would blend and bottle the wine. In 1997, Bodegas Gutierrez Colosia, followed the lead of other small sherry suppliers and began to bottle the wine themselves in order to preserve the uniqueness of their vineyard's micro-climate.
