Winemaker's Notes:

The color is a lemon golden yellow. It is clear and fresh on the nose, with aromas indicating a very good biological aging, crystallized fruit, wild and floral notes, dried fruit, and almond. On the palate it is light, tasty, enveloping, fresh and persistent. A pale and delicate style of sherry with a salty tang from the sea.
My Notes:

About Hijos de Rainera Perez Marin:

The brand name LA GUITA comes from the fact that the founder always asked those interested in buying it: “Do you have guita? “Guita” being an old Spanish slang word for money, in addition to meaning cord. And so, people began to call the winery by the name of "La Guita”. Later on, to strengthen the brand name, a piece of cord was added to the bottle. The LA GUITA brand has been registered since 1908. In 1917, the company changed its name to “Rainera Pérez Marín” and in 1928 to “Hijos de Rainera Pérez Marín”, the name which it still maintains today.
