Opens with a wonderful set of nutty, dry aromas along with pit fruits like nectarines, apricot and peach. The palate is a cacaphony of toasty, peppery flavors sweetened by caramel and brown sugar. It has a fine feel and balance, and then finishing notes of browned butter and sautéed mushroom. Delicious oloroso.

A range of salty mineral flavors melds with dried fruit notes and hints of caramel in this Oloroso, a wine of poise and delicacy that transforms its tough structure and marked acidity into silken grace. Aged for 12 years in botas. Perfect for sea urÂchin sashimi.

Don Nuno manages a precise balance of austerity and sweetness that makes it a particularly drinkable Oloroso. In this saca, the wine feels a little fat, firmed up and supported by a base of acidity and minerality. A wine for tranquil sipping after dinner.

Nicely defined, with salted caramel, date and green tea notes leading the way, backed by brisk blood orange and spice cake notes that add length and cut on the finish. Drink now. 500 cases imported.

This off-dry oloroso delivers coffee and caramel flavors, with accents of soy and iodine. Well-balanced, with a lingering note of burnt molasses. Drink now.
