Tips

• Drink now or keep for up to 9 years.  Note: Manzanilla Oro and Amontillado Don Paco - wines that age at least for 6 to 10 years under the flor (or layer of yeast), which is called Biological Ageing, in over 20 year-old soleras - are those that mature longest in the bottle.  However, Oloroso El Galeón will also mature well in the bottle, resulting in a very smooth wine with interesting aromas of old exotic woods
• Pairs with Tapas, Manchego or any cheese (cow, goat or sheep), Ibérico ham, Paté or any Spreads, Poultry, Pasta or Pizza, Legumes, Seafood, all kind of fish, rice-based dishes, Sushi, Sashimi and spiced Asian or exotic dishes
• Ideal at room temperatures but also, in some cases if you want to pair it with white fish or mild textures you can chill it to a temperature range of 11 to 14 Celsius
• If you are serving multiple wines from Sanlucar or Jerez, such as Manzanilla, Fino, Amontillado, Palo Cortado, or Oloroso, we recommend to follow this order.  You can serve an entire meal paired only with wines from Jerez and Sanlucar, the Land of Albariza

Ratings

The wines from Bodegas Barrero have never been presented to any of the national or international wine reviewers, such as Guía Peñín, The Wine Advocate, Decanter, or Jancis Robinson.  In reality the quality of their wines can be considered beyond the need for accolades.


Monthly wine subscriptions (Amigo, Aficionado, Maestro) are delivered during the last week of each month. If you reserve a case apart from your subscription we deliver it as soon as possible.
If we don't have any cases on hand in Toronto you can pre-order any number. Please note, pre-ordered cases can take from 3 - 16 weeks to arrive due to importing processes and regulations...but don't worry, wine only gets better with age!
