The Wine. Amontillado del Castillo 1/38

Bright amber colour with coppery reflections. Intense aromas of hazelnut praliné with elegant notes of candied orange zest. Nuances of varnish and cabinetry with smoked wood in the background.

Dry, pungent and flavoursome in the palate, with a refreshing acidity. Enormously nutty with a delicious salty spiced touch and an extremely long aftertaste.

The Almacenista. Antonio Caballero y Sobrinos

Antonio Caballero ran the family business, a brandy distillery, in the 1870’s in El Puerto de Santa María. Antonio always expressed a passion for Sherry wines. At the end of the 19th century he established a few soleras of Sherry which he cared for personally with devotion for over two decades.

In the 1960’s, one of Antonio’s nephews, Luis Caballero Noguera, moved the most special soleras to a very unique location, the Castle of San Marcos, a landmark building in the historic centre of El Puerto de Santa María, where these Sherry wines have rested surrounded by a halo of history, culture and mystery ever since.

The rich heritage of this Castle has not only shaped the history of this town, but also the history of Spain, witnessing crucial moments that changed the course of times past.

Initially built as a Roman church, it was then turned into an Islamic mosque. With its current shape, the fortress was a temporary home to distinguished inhabitants such as King Alfonso X “the Wise” and the explorer Christopher Columbus.

All of the history and culture contained within its walls make this castle a unique and magical place to age Sherry.
