ABOUT THE PRODUCER:
For nearly 200 years, Bodegas Gutierrez Colosia has grown grapes for sherry in the city of El Puerto de Santa Maria. Located in the province of Cadiz, El Puerto de Santa Maria's unique micro-climate is the perfect environment needed for aging sherry and developing the "flor" layer of yeast that gives sherry its unique taste and aroma.
Bodegas Gutierrez Colosia was founded in 1838 on the mouth of the Guadalete river. The climate and ocean winds here create an ideal environment for the aging of the Bodega's wines.
Traditionally they sold their sherry supply to larger sherry houses who would blend and bottle the wine. In 1997, Bodegas Gutierrez Colosia, followed the lead of other small sherry suppliers and began to bottle the wine themselves in order to preserve the uniqueness of their vineyard's micro-climate.

"I had the tiniest sip of this sherry, and had to share how delicious it is. Very raisiny, very syrupy, and very clean, with no residue that anyone found (as compared to the cream sherry). It tasted like raisins soaked in wine, and reminded us of both mead and plum wine. I reserved a tiny bit for a dark cake with raisins, and am just dreaming of how delicious that will come out. If you are looking for a sweet, sweet wine with a great, heady aroma and full-frontal raisin taste, this is it."
