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.

Sherry and wines from Jerez are probably Spain’s biggest contribution to the world of wine. Unique and special, there is nothing else like them in the world. A great diversity of Sherry wine is produced in DO Jerez-Sherry-Manzanilla de Sanlúcar, everything from sweet wines to fortified wines. Sweet wines are divided between Pedro Ximénez and Moscatel, depending on the variety used during production. Concerning fortified wines, there is a large range including Finos, Amontillado, Manzanilla, Oloroso, Medium, Cream and Palo Cortado, classified depending on the result of the ageing process under the ´velo flor´. A unique trait of these wines is the ageing process using the Solera Method, a system using various barrels from different vintages. The system uses stacked barrels, where a portion of a barrel’s contents is extracted and mixed with the lower barrel, with the barrel then filled with the contents of the upper barrel. Thus, the new wine is gradually coming to be thanks to the age of the rest of the content of screeds.
