Profile

One of the oldest wines from the winery and on earth, the NV 1905 Amontillado Solera Fundacional is a non-vintage wine, and the year on the label refers to when the solera was initiated. Having said that, the average age of the wine is extremely high as the saca of wine from those soleras (saca means to take out, and is the word used for when some wine is taken from the solera and bottled) is extremely rare. The wine is believed to average 80 years of age, which means an extreme concentration of aromas, flavors and all other components.

Dark amber color with a piercing, intense nose of noble wood, sea breeze, iodine, and hazelnuts, it is very detailed, pure, focused, sharp, salty, and on the verge of being painfully intense. With lively acidity, great concentration, and an eternal aftertaste, this is as unique and as good as Amontillado gets.

Critic Awards

The NV 1905 Oloroso Solera Fundacional, produced from Pedro Ximenez grapes aged oxidatively in a solera started in 1905, averages an old age close to 80 years of age, which for some is the limit of drinkability for an Oloroso, as they get so aggressively concentrated that often makes them too much. Having said that, this wine feels surprisingly gentle, dark amber with green edges, it has a sweet nose of dried apricots, roasted nuts, lively acidity,and great length.
