The ‘Faraon’ is the head of an Andalusian gypsy family. Oloroso Seco Faraon is aged oxidatively for several years in butts of American oak. Matured in casks of American oak in a “solera” or fractional blending system in the coastal town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda. The maturation is an oxidative process; no flor grows since the wine is fortified after vinification. Then follows an average of seven years of ageing in cask, to give a dry, complex wine.
Nutty, rich aromas of pecans and walnuts, plus dried fruits, leather and exotic spices. Full rich smooth flavour, yet dry and smooth. Excellent with nuts in particular, but suits all pre-dinner nibbles. Similarly usperb on it’s own. Do not over chill in order to appreciate the more delicate flavours.
