La Garrocha has spent nine years aging through the Solera system. Heady with roasted nut aromas, it’s snappy with citrus and sea salt, orange peel cutting through caramel and brown sugar. The juxtaposition of mouth-coating texture and brightening acidity gives the sensation of comfort yet refreshment, simultaneously relaxing and awakening the palate. A really great everyday Amontillado, and perfect for those looking to explore Sherry more.
Bodegas Grant, located in the heart of the town of El Puerto de Santa Maria, has been owned by the same family since 1841. Edmundo Grant is the current generation caring for the bodega. The Grant family are former almacenistas who only recently began to estate bottle. Although the do not own any vineyards, they primarily source grapes from the famed Pago Valvaina. Their label, La Garrocha, refers to a famous dance performed with a stick while on horseback.
