Perez Barquero 1905 Solera Fundacional Amontillado gets its name from the oldest vintage contained in this non-vintage solera method wine; it's a rich tapestry of flavor profiles and silky texture, at once energetic and mellow. This sherry explodes with raisined and juicy fruit, saline minerals, Christmas cake, toasted nuts, marmalade and ginger, and this kaleidoscope of flavor notes continues on the concentrated, rich palate. Deeply viscous, dry, and powerful, this wine unfolds in mind-bending layers, wrapping its fruit around a serious core of minerals to create a dizzying drinking experience. Crafted entirely of Pedro Ximenez in the solera method, this wine ages in American oak for decades before bottling. The solera method blends across multiple vintages, and the average age of the wines in this sherry is about eighty years old, which allows for unbelievable complexity and nuance.

Bodegas Maranones Description

Just over 308 acres situated in Spain's Córdoba province, family-owned-and-operated Perez Barquero is devoted to the Pedro Ximenez grape, which, aided by the relatively rainy climate of southern Spain, grows perfectly in the estate's porous, chalky albariza soils. The estate's holdings occupy some of the best locations in the Montilla-Moriles appellation, and Perez Barquero has rightfully earned its reputation for crafting many of the region's best wines. While Perez Barquero makes a range of both dry and sweet wines, brandies and vinegars, it's most famous for 1905 Solera Fundacional Amontillado, a world-class sherry of complexity, nuance and elegance that's named after the year the estate was founded. High quality is the driving force at Perez Barquero, and its consistently great releases testify to the success of the estate's efforts.
