Osborne Very Old Rare Sherries are a treasure inherit from years and years of patience, devotion and hardworking. The complexity and soul of these wines are unique and unparallel. The Solera of this wine was set in 1864, and has an average age of 40 years.
Solera AOS Rare Sherry
The Palomino grapes are gently harvested by hand and carried in small boxes to avoid damages to the grapes. Then, they are softly pressed, folowed by fermentation at a controlled temperature of 24ºC/75ºF.
Once the wine achieves 11%-12% vol., wine spirit is added up to 17% vol.
The fortified wine is then transferred to 500 litre American oak casks, where ages through the unique system of Soleras, for 40 years average. This long aging time makes the wine complex and well balanced.
The special microclimate in El Puerto de Santa María, where our winery is located, allows this oxidative aging process to occur smoothly, imprinting its marvellous personality to the wine.
