Review

The Oloroso El Cerro, amongst the oldest and most special wines made by Bodega Callejuela, obtained the distinction of being named the best fortified wine of 2015 by El Mundo Vino. It's a wine that had already started its formation when Francisco Blanco was running the winery: it's over 20 years old. The grapes come from the estate vineyards surrounding the winery. It's bottled en rama (in as natural a state as possible) with minimal filtration.

On the nose it's generous and rich in fruit aromas (figs, dates and dried apricots), caramel and beeswax. Hints of leather, toasted almonds and warm spices like vanilla and cinnamon. On the palate it's intense, with a perfect balance between acidity and sweetness. The spices become cooler, now evocative of cloves and pepper. The oak comes out in a toasty and subtly caramel finish.

The best series of sherry I have tasted

Francisco, father of the current managers, started at that time to buy vineyards in the Marco de Jerez region. In 1997, they moved to Pago del Hornillo, one of Sanlúcar's highest areas, a...
