Characteristics of Amontillado Argüeso
Amontillado Argüeso is a generoso wine produced by Bodegas Argüeso in Sanlúcar de Barrameda (Jeréz), D.O. Jeréz.
Bodegas Argüeso was founded in1822 by León de Argüeso y Argüeso when he bought some old "soleras" and the winery San José, in Sanlúcar de Barrameda. The winery has grown until today, ageing its manzanilla wines in over 20,000 square metres, located in the historic centre of Sanlúcar.
Since the very beginning, Bodegas Argüeso has made the most renown manzanillas, which are highly valued by experts. Their good work has come through in each of their bottles.
Amontillado Argüeso is a wine made from Palomino grapes, from vineyards located in the municipality of Sanlúcar de Barrameda.
After they are harvested and pressed, the must ferments in stainless steel deposits at a controlled temperature of 25°C. Once the wine is selected, it is fortified up to 15% vol. Then it is introduced into the "criaderas" and "soleras" system, ageing biologically with the flor (yeast cap) for 4 years, and then going through oxidative ageing. In total, it is aged for a minimum of 10 months.
Amontillado Argüeso is an ample, balanced and soft generoso wine. It stands out for the great combination of the notes from its two ageing processes, aromas of yeasts on an extremely elegant roasted background.

Jerez is home to an exceptional culture in winemaking and viticulture, producing an incredible variety of wines. Sherry and the DO. Jerez region are unlike any other wine or region in Spain and symbolise a centuries-old culture and a true art form of ecological tradition. Even today it is fair to say that these wines have not found their equivalent in the world, and are therefore a real asset to the Spanish word of wine.
