The very special microclimate of our winery located at the mouth of the Guadalquivir River, provides the development of the ‘velo de flor’ which provides its 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.
