Personality and character
Alfonso is a dry oloroso with a minimum of 8 years in American oak cask following the traditional Solera system.
VarietyPalomino Fino 100%
Alcoholic content18% vol.
Due to its time in contact with oxygen Alfonso shows a golden amber colour.
On the palate flavourful and structured with a long and complex aftertaste and slight vanilla touches with a surprising sweet note on the finish.
On the nose round intense aromas with the nuttiness of the Palomino variety standing out, in this case hazelnuts and walnuts. As a result of the time spent in cask Alfonso shows subtle aromas of oak and spiced notes which remind of truffle or leather.
Alfonso should be served slightly chilled between 10 and 12ºC in a small white wine glass.Perfect with rich meat stews, cured meats and beef/goose consommé. The dryness of this wine makes it perfect for gelatinous meats such as oxtail and pork cheeks.
