Description

Gutierrez Colosia Amontillado Sherry is an aged Amontillado Sherry made by this small, family-owned Sherry house. 

Bodegas Gutierrez Colosia can trace it beginnings back to 1838 when the bodega was built and has been preserved almost as such to this day. Towards the beginning of the 20th century it was acquired by Sr. José Gutiérrez Dosal, the late great-grandfather of the current Gutiérrez Colosía family. The Gutiérrez Colosía wines are produced in bodegas, or wine cellars, with an architectural style known as Nave Cathedral or cathedral-like warehouse. These arched buildings of significant height, help to expose the wines to the influence of the local climate.  Its cellars are located at the mouth of the river Guadalete in El Puerta de Santa Maria (the third town on the Sherry Triangle after Jerez de La Frontera and Sanlúcar de Barrameda). The location gives the Sherries produced by Gutiérrez Colosía a unique microclimate that offers the perfect humidity level to grow flor, and age their unique tasting Fino del Puerto.

These Puerto-variation wines are traditionally lighter in oxidative flavour than those from Jerez. Juan- Carlos Gutiérrez Colosia believes his Fino is best drunk fresh and chilled, so it is therefore available after only three or four years in solera. His amontillado and oloroso are bottled with greater age and are also perfect for chilling.

Following several years as a Fino this Gutierrez Colosia Amontillado Sherry was encouraged to become an Amontillado Sherry, averaging about 10 years old. Made from 100% Palomino grapes, it is a dry Amontillado.

Also available in 37.5cl half bottles

Tasting Notes

Gutierrez Colosia Amontillado Sherry is a light golden colour with salty almonds and oaky spice on the nose. On the palate dryness is immediately characterised by
subtle flavours of almonds, hazelnuts and a slight hint of oranges. Light and still fresh at the finish with a good
balance of acidity and depth.

To Serve

Serve chilled as an aperitif or with soups, tapas or cold meats.
