Bodegas Barón was founded by Manuel Barón Fernández in 1895 who acquired some old soleras from Anselmo Paz, an almacenista in Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Manuel Barón’s wife had a much older family history in sherry though, so you could say Barón’s history goes back almost 400 years already. Today, ten generations later, the company is owned by Jose Rodriguez Jiménez and his sons Juan Luis and Jose. It is located in the barrio alto of Sanlúcar, where they store nearly 10.000 barrels of wine. They also have newer premises in the outskirts of town. They own three vineyards, all on Albariza soil: Finca Atalaya (previously owned by Osborne), Finca Martín Miguel and Finca Poedo. While their focus is still on Manzanilla, Bodegas Barón are clearly working hard to extend their range and gain more interest. We respect the environment using 100% ecological products, maintaining a commitment to the future and sustainable development, with a maximum guarantee of quality in all our products.
Golden yellow with copper tones. Pungent on the bouquet, aromas of biological aging, nuts (hazelnut, almond), acetic and medicinal background. Angel hair notes. Dry, with good vibrant acidity, with volume and depth. Very expressive and balanced. Step with aromas of nuts and long finish with saline memories and elegant bitterness on a lip smacking end.
