BODEGAS YUSTE - AURORA SHERRY
Fco. Yuste (Bodegas Yuste) is dedicated to the preservation of tradition and quality in Sanlúcar de Barrameda. This Oloroso, aged in Sanlúcar's maritime climate, retains delicacy while offering velvet roundness and a long, dry finish.
ORIGIN Sanlúcar de Barrameda, Spain
MAKER Bodegas Yuste
PAIRING Ideal with cheeses, nuts and grilled or cured meats.
Yuste quality starts in the vineyard with the fabulous 46-hectare Viña La Alamedilla estate in the Jerez pago of Carrascal. Longterm sources in El Puerto de Santa María’s Balbaína and Sanlúcar’s Miraflores contribute in equal parts to combine freshness and minerality with ample body.
New wines arrive to Bodega Miraflores. Just 800 meters from the Guadalquivir estuary, Miraflores offers ideal conditions for sobretablas selection and the first stages of Manzanilla development. After five years, the manzanilla fina passes to Bodega Los Ángeles for aging as Aurora Manzanilla before entering the solera at Bodega Santa Ana in the Barrio Bajo where La Kika (Manzanilla Pasada en Rama, well over 10 years old: “The Pearl of Sanlúcar”) is bottled by hand from selected individual botas.
