      Winemaker Notes

      The Amonitillado La Garrocha has spent nine years aging through the Solera system. The microclimate of the bodega produces a distinct flor that gives this sherry its unique characteristics. Very floral with sweet nut aromas. The palate is delicate and rich.

      Amontillado La Garrocha should be served at room temperature (68°F).

      This wine smells like a sweet Amontillado, but it isn't sweet at all. Three years in oak have given it caramel aromas that quickly transform into a mature nuttiness, the flavor similar to a chestnut tart. What comes next is taut acidity, coupled with a sensation of salinity that engulfs any sweetness and leaves a sense of balance.

      Accessible and round, with notes of salted caramel, almond husk, date and dried persimmon all weaving through the detailed finish. A great introduction to the amontillado style for Sherry newbies, but still complex enough for aficionados.

      Bodegas Grant, Spain
      Bodegas Grant, located in the heart of the town of El Puerto de Santa María, has been owned by the same family since 1841. Edmundo Grant and his son Edmundo are the current caretakers of the bodega. The Grant family are former almacenistas who only recently began to estate bottle. Although they do not own any vineyards, they primarily source grapes from the famed Pago Valvaina. Their label, La Garrocha, refers to a famous dance performed with a stick while on horseback.

      Known more formally as Jerez de la Frontera, Jerez is a city in Andalucía in southwest Spain and the center of the Jerez region and sherry production. Sherry is a mere English corruption of the term Jerez, while in French, Jerez is written, Xérès. Manzanilla is the freshest style of sherry, naturally derived from the seaside town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda.

      Sherry comes from only one place in the entire world, Andalucía, Spain where the soil and unique seasonal changes give a particular and unsurpassable character to its wines. The process of production—not really the grape—determine the type, though certain types are reserved for certain grapes. Sherry's main grapes include Palomino, Pedro Ximénez and Muscat of Alexandria.

      Tasting Notes for Sherry

      Sherry is a fortified wine that comes in many styles from dry to sweet. Fino, from Jerez, and the similar style called Manzanilla, from the humid and cool, coastal town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, are the lightest and driest styles, and are meant for early consumption. Their creation is dependent on the action of flor, which are benevolent film-forming yeasts that make a floating veil on the surface of the wine, which aid in protecting it from oxidation. Amontillado happens when a Fino’s layer of flor fades and the wine starts to oxidize. Quite simply it is an aged Fino that has a darker color and richer palate. When flor yeast dies unexpectedly, the result is Palo Cortado. A Palo Cortado Sherry can behave like Amontillado on the palate but often show a greater balance of richness and delicacy. Oloroso never develops flor but is oxidized for anywhere from five to twenty five years, becoming aromatic and strong like a fine bourbon. A sweetened Oloroso is a Cream sherry; a Pale Cream is one that has had the color removed. Pedro Ximénez and Muscat, representing a tiny proportion of production can make some amazing single varietal sweet sherries but the vast number of styles are primarily based on the Palomino grape.

      Perfect Food Pairings for Sherry

      For Fino and Manzanilla, think Spanish tapas: baked anchovies, patatas bravas, olives, cold cuts and manchego. For Amontillado and Palo Cortado, dishes like roasted turkey, grilled tuna, artichokes and asparagus will go well; dark chocolate could pair with these too. Rich poultry and foie gras will work with dry Oloroso. Cream Sherry and sweet Pedro Ximénez should be enjoyed with dessert or cheese.

      Sommelier Secrets for Sherry

      Most Sherry produced is dry and meant to pair alongside traditional Spanish food. The British and American markets have traditionally focused on the sweet ones.
