Villapanés Oloroso N/V


Wine Description

Villapanés is the name of the historic family estate that is situated in the heart of Jerez. As is traditional, this sherry is made entirely from noble Palomino grapes grown pure white albarizo soil. The elegance of this wine is due in part to a brief aging under flor before its oxidative aging period, which lasts an average of 15 to 20 years. It is considered by many to be the Oloroso par excellence.

Tasting Notes

Villapanés is a rich mahogany color and boasts seductive, toasty aromas of almonds, caramel, fig and a hint of floral perfume. On the palate it is dry, generous and full-bodied, with persistent and lasting flavors.

Food Pairing

Pair with roast poultry, red meat or salty, aged cheeses.
