Review

Initially aged under a film of yeast called ‘flor’, and afterwards for several years with oxidative ageing. It is made using the traditional solera system for ageing sherry, whereby tiers of casks (criaderas) are arranged so that the upper rows feed their younger wines to the older wines below.

NOTE: Should be served very cold.

  • Optimum serving temperature:Between 13º C and 14º C

In questo l'Escuadrilla é un supporto impareggiabile.

The original company was founded in 1896 by Don José Ruiz-Berdejo, a wholesaler who grew vines on an estate that is still in the family, and sold his wines to the large exporting bodegas.
