Being a product called “pasada” is left to the end of the beginning of its natural oxidative aging, spoiling closely our yeast in bloom. The very special microclimate of our winery located at the mouth of the Guadalquivir River, foster the development of the ‘velo de flor’ providing a product of peculiar organoleptic characteristics. This biological aging continues for a period of three to four years in American oak barrels using the traditional ‘criaderas’ and solera system.

This particular aging process begins, as in the case of ‘manzanillas’, with an initial phase called under ‘velo de flor’; throughout the early years in the ‘criaderas’ this wine acquires sharp notes and accentuates its dry palate. From one point, the disappearance of the ‘velo de flor’ causes a second phase of oxidative aging that gradually darken the wine and it will provide concentration and complexity.

The slow water loss through the walls of the timber boots promotes a continuous process of concentration, which makes the wine is winning in structure, softness and complexity.
