Characteristics Valdespino Amontillado Coliseo VORS

Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Valdespino Amontillado Coliseo VORS is a fortified wine made by the Valdespino winery in the D.O. Jerez-Xérèz-Sherry with the Palomino variety.

Valdespino, one of the oldest wineries in the Marco de Jerez, is characterised by the traditional production of fortified wines. It dates back to 1875, with the Estevez Family taking over in 1985.

All Valdespino Amontillado Coliseo VORS grapes come from the Macharnudo Alto plot, a privileged area of Jerez Superior. With characteristic white albariza land, limestone soil with a clayey texture and high calcium carbonate content, the Palomino native variety does extremely well.

In the winery, Valdespino Amontillado Coliseo VORS ages under a yeast cap, a floating layer that develops on the surface. Once the cap disappears, the wine is exposed to oxidation. An average aging of at least 30 years in total.

Valdespino Amontillado Coliseo VORS is the oldest amontillado that the Valdespino winery sells and one that has achieved 99 Parker points.

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.
