Production, Maturing and Ageing : Unlike traditional sherries, aged by means of the “Solera y Criaderas” system, these vintage wines are aged statically. For production purposes grape must originating from the old vines of the Añina and/or Carrascal vineyard zones, or Pagos, is first selected and then fortified either to 15º for biological ageing or to 18º for oxidative ageing. These wines are then closely studied throughout their ageing process, during which time they are left untouched until the moment they are selected for bottling. In contrast to the homogeneity provided by the Criaderas y Solera system, during which wine of different ages are methodically blended, each of these wines is unique and special. They are wines that offer a true reflection of the year’s harvest and its particular climatic conditions, as well as the individual evolution of each during its specific static ageing process.

Production Fino Añada 2017 : This project of vintages according to vineyard zone commenced in 2017. After the selection of grapes from the Pago de Añina vineyard zone, the must obtained from pressing was fermented under controlled temperatures. Once the lees had been filtered off it was fortified to 15.5% and began a period of biological ageing in old casks, a layer of yeast, the flor, forming naturally upon the surface. A special bottling was made from a single cask of the complete set of 14 casks: cask number 14, in which the exceptional fineness, verticality and minerality of Pago de Añina were most pronounced.
Tasting notes : Golden in colour with marked flecks of gold, great aromatic complexity with marked aromas typical of biological ageing. A wine with volume, very long and very expressive, fine, oily and with lingering persistence.
