One of the most exceptional of the small, independent sherry houses, Fernando de Castilla was revitalised in 1999 by Jan Pettersen - a Norwegian with a passion for top quality sherry, and 15 years experience at Osborne. After taking over the cellars of the Sherry shipper Jose Bustamante, located next door to the main facilities of Fernando de Castilla, Jan quickly established Fernando de Castilla as masters of the production and ageing of fine, unblended, untreated Sherries. The bodega's reputation is based on the excellence of the Antique range of intensely pure and complex single solera Sherries whose award winning packaging makes them even more impressive. The Antique Palo Cortado was awarded 'Best Dry Fortified Trophy' at the 2011 New Wave Spanish Wine Awards, whilst the Antique Amontillado scooped the trophy for Dry Fortified at the 2011 Decanter World Wine Awards.

Vineyards

Produced in the Jerez region of Andalusia, Spain.

Vinification

Pot still distillates are aged in barrels that have previously contained only old oloroso sherries and the ageing process is done using the traditional system of soleras and criaderas. The Solera Gran Reserva has been aged for 12 years - 3 years in Limousin casks and 9 years in sherry casks.

Tasting Notes

Fernando de Castilla Solera Gran Reserva is a superior quality Spanish Brandy made using only the traditional method. It was matured in oak vats previously used for the world famous sherries of Jerez. It has a golden/mahogany colour and the nose is clean, elegant and complex with a hint of oak. The palate is soft, fruity and elegant with a broad range of flavours. Well matured with a long finish.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
