La Cigarrera Amontillado VORS Sherry NV (375ml)

La Cigarrera Amontillado VORS Sherry NV (375ml)

La Cigarrera’s Amontillado is an amazing wine that is located in the Sacristia of the bodega. The Sacristia contains Ignacio’s family’s oldest wines that have been passed down through generations.  In essence it is the dowry of the bodega. There is one barrel of this Amontillado which belonged to Ignacio’s grandmother.

Aged for over 30 years in the solera, the Amontillado is one of the family heirlooms kept in the bodega’s Sacristia.

Bodegas La Cigarrera is located in the heart of Sanlúcar de Barrameda. This almacenista began operations in 1758, and cellar master Ignacio Hidalgo began bottling his own Manzanilla in 1997. Ignacio is a ninth-generation cellar master, whose family’s wines were previously sold to famous Sherry houses, including Lustau, for bottling. La Cigarrera refers to the cigarette/tobacco women who used to sell on the sidewalks of Sanlúcar. It is a tribute to the pride, beauty, and history of this town. The key to the quality of La Cigarrera is the exceptional raw materials and the location of the winery. La Cigarrera Manzanilla is produced exclusively from vineyards in the Jerez Superior Denomination of Origin. Only wines aged in Sanlúcar de Barrameda are labeled as D.O. Manzanilla. The unique microclimate of Sanlúcar de Barrameda creates a very special "flor", or yeast, that grows year round on the wines, protecting them from the atmosphere. Hence, the wine goes through what is termed a "biological aging", with the wine aging and breathing through this layer of yeast. This growth is actually affected by subtle differences in location within the town. La Cigarrera is located in the ideal center with proximity to the ocean, giving the wine its distinctive character.
