D.O. Jerez-Xérès-Sherry (Andalusia)
The origin of the Marqués del Real Tesoro winery dates back to 1897 when the grandson of the first marquis acquired his first soleras from the Count of Villacreces, who was the owner of soleras that were over 200 years old.
This marked the beginning of its expansion, due to the exceptional Jerez wines originating in these old soleras, eventually becoming suppliers to the Royal Household.
In 1982 the winery was bought by the José Estévez Group, thereby becoming a part of one of the most important winemaking groups in the country.
Fino Tío Mateo is a fine wine made with Palomino Fino grapes from the Pagos de Macharnudo and Corchuelo, characterised by the type of soil know as albariza, a soil with mineral components and a high chalk content.
After the grape harvest, the grapes are pressed and the resulting must is fermented in stainless steel vats. Once the fermentation is finished, it is drawn off and classified to be fortified up to 15% vol. alc. At this point it enters the traditional system of criaderas and soleras to undergo biological ageing for a minimum of 5 years.
Fino Tío Mateo is an intense and deep biologically agedwine. On the nose, the aromas of nuts stand out. On the palate it is mineral and salty, with a long and dry finish.
