Valora este producto

Altanza receives the Best Fortified Wine of the Year for its exceptional Palo Cortado, La Saca, at the 3rd edition of The Master Winemaker 100 Awards organized by the prestigious magazine The Drink Business.
In this third edition held in Paris, Altanza has been awarded the highest honour, Best Fortified Wine of the Year for La Saca, with a limited edition of 198 bottles. Aged in Centennial Solera, and undergoing oxidative aging for over 100 years, La Saca presents itself as a Dry Palo Cortado Generoso, crafted 100% from Palomino, one of the most representative varieties of the Jerez Designation of Origin.
La Saca is a wine that, according to Carlos Ferreiro, winemaker at Altanza, “exhibits exceptional finesse, a wine that is completely brilliant, elegant, and different.” On the palate, it displays a topaz colour with coppery notes, intense aromas of hazelnut, walnut, and toasted, vegetal, and tobacco notes. It has a powerful, dry mouthfeel, highly expressive, with a full body and an exquisite finish, balanced with broad nuances of the Solera.
Altanza decided to make the leap to Jerez in 2021 to continue adding high-quality wines and achieve the dream of being present in the two oldest Designations of Origin in Spain: D.O. Ca Rioja and D.O. Jerez. The winery is located in the historic Barrio de Santiago, the cradle of flamenco, in Jerez de la Frontera, and its facilities include a large Gallery dedicated entirely to the world of Sherry, created by Roberto Amillo, an enthusiastic expert of the D.O. Jerez.
Carlos Ferreiro, winemaker at Altanza, is the one who selects and crafts these unique, distinguished an exceptional wines.
