Product Information

The ‘Faraón’ is the head of an Andalusian gypsy family. Oloroso Seco Faraon is aged oxidatively for several years in butts of American oak. The grapes are sourced exclusively from our own vineyards in Balbaina and Miraflores. Matured in casks of American oak in a “solera” or “fractional blending” system, in the coastal town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, maturation is an oxidative process; no flor grows since the wine is fortified after vinification. Then follows an average of seven years of ageing in cask, to give a dry and wonderfully complex wine.

Tasting Notes

Intensely rich pervading walnut aromas. The palate is dry, intense, rich and deep with a long and powerful flavour.

How to Serve

A pungent aperitif, but also great with many foods: Tapas, soup, dry cheeses and even beef.

Accolades

“The Faraon is the Gypsy King - the partner, perhaps, to La Gitana. The eponymous oloroso matures very close to the river, in humid cellars. It's full of finesse; never coarse or weighty” Sarah Jane Evans MW, Decanter Magazine, November 2014

"Amazing juxtaposition of aromas here. Sweet/sour orange and apricot combined with a more burnished umami quality. Power and richness on the palate and that non-sweet honeyed quality with a tangy finish." Julia Harding MW, September 2016
