Maestro Sierra

Jerez-Xérès-Sherry

After a very arduous tasting trip to the sherry triangle during the Feria de Jerez a few years ago (surely one of the top ten parties in the world), we came across Maestro Sierra. These are wines made in super old barrels, moved using manual siphoning, settled by time, bottled unfiltered and unsulphured. The labels feature a fox being chased by a hunt, which Ana from the bodega says represents Maestro Sierra being chased by the larger sherry houses. Some of their practices (and the resulting wines) sit outside the normal rules for sherry, but the Consejo Regulador recognises the unique nature of the wines and grants them exceptions. The classic range of Fino, Amontillado, Oloroso, Amoroso, and PX are all incredibly good. In addition to the wines listed here, we also have some older sherries, including a 100 year-old Oloroso, which are more like very fine spirits, to be sipped, contemplated and savoured at one’s leisure. Genuine treasures of the wine world...
