Gutierrez Colosia Oloroso El Puerto de Santa María
Offers a slightly darker profile, with date, toffee and burnt orange peel notes, staying dry and taut overall. A bit more polished than most, presenting a caressing feel through the ginger-infused finish. Drink now.
While Gutierrez Colosia boasts wonderfully fresh El Puerto finos, a product of the fresh climate and consistent humidity afforded the town by the Atlantic and Guadalete River, their most famous wines might be their Olorosos, which are so light on their feet and deliciously saline that many have been known to mistake them for Amontillados. This is a lighter style, dry Oloroso to be sure, though it does in fact have the mid palate weight and slightly rounder quality of an Oloroso. Enjoy this either as an aperitif before a Sunday lunch, digestive after a weeknight dinner, or accompaniment to braised meats - our own Kyle Kurani has a great braised oxtail recipe I'm sure he'd be willing to share!
