Our third wine will be Alfonso, which is a dry oloroso made from Palomino fino grapes. From the González Byass winery in Jeréz de la Frontera. With a minimum of 8 years in American oak casks, following the traditional system of "criaderas y soleras". It is very intense on the nose and tasty and long on the palate.

The fourth wine will be Heredad de Hidalgo, Pedro Xiemenez Perfect with desserts, especially ice cream. Tasting note: Very sweet dark colored wine. In the mouth it is dense and velvety with hints of dried plums. Intense nose with hints of raisins and ripe fruits.
