ABOUT THE WINE:
The Grant family are former almacenistas who only recently began to estate-bottle less than one thousand cases per year of half-bottles. Although they do not own any vineyards, they primarily source grapes from the famed Pago Balbaína. The wines have found many fans with their straightforward honesty and a certain rustic, satisfying character which is uniquely El Puerto de Santa María. Their iconic labels depict the La Garrocha, a reference to a traditional Andalusian dance performed with a stick while on horseback. The garrocha requires a lot of skill, traditionally demonstrated in beautiful artistic displays of horsemanship to music. In Spain, it is regarded as a true art form. Bodegas Grant exudes a similar class, refinement, and charm.
TASTING NOTES: The Amontillado La Garrocha has spent nine years aging through the Solera system. The microclimate of the bodega produces a distinct flor that gives this sherry its unique characteristics. Dry and smooth with an amber colour, and a sharp but subtle hazelnut bouquet
