Located in the centre of Jerez de la Frontera, Bodegas El Maestro Sierra resides at one of the highest elevations in town. This allows the bodega to receive warm, humid winds that arrive from the sea, aiding in a better climate for the growth of flor, which remains active the whole year round. Today however, we’re trying a wine that isn’t exposed to flor, the Oloroso 15 años.
The Oloroso 15 años is the youngest Oloroso produced by this house. The fact that it comes with an age statement (other than the official VOS and VORS) is quite rare in the Jerez region. There’s also an Oloroso 1|14 VORS (around 50 years, from a solera fed by the 15 yo) and a very rare Oloroso 1|7 VORS (around 100 years).
