‘Alameda’ is the central plaza in Sevilla, it is here that young women are said to walk in the early evening in hope of attracting the attention of suitors. Oloroso Abocado Alameda is a mix of old Olorosos and sweeter wines made from Pedro Ximenez, which are aged for several years in soleras of American oak. It is off-dry.
Aroma: dried fruit.
Taste: full rich warm flavour, sweet and very smooth.
How To Serve: Excellent with nuts in particular, but suits all pre-dinner nibbles. Similarly superb on its own. Do not over chill in order to appreciate the more delicate flavours.
La Gitana Established in 1792, the family owned and run business is now in its sixth generation and is widely regarded as the definitive Manzanilla house.
Extensive vineyard holdings ensure the best quality Palomino Fino is delivered from the bright albariza soils to the bodegas in Sanlúcar de Barrameda, where every step is taken during the long solera process to deliver excellence and consistency. Gradual biological ageing via the solera process under natural flor for Manzanilla and Amontillado produces dry, salty styles that are proving particularly popular in our ever evolving tapas-style culinary culture, where their ability to match such a diversity of ingredients is unrivalled and increasingly fashionable.
