Bodegas Gutiérrez Colosía

Since 1838, Bodegas Gutiérrez Colosía are located in the mouth of the river Guadalete in El Puerto de Santa María. The buildings were used by different producers until it was acquired by the Gutiérrez family in the 1920s. It operated as an almacenista, a bodega that produces wine for other, larger bodegas – in this case Williams & Humbert, Osborne, Lustau and Gonzalez Byass among others. During the late 1990s, the company was split among different family members and Juan Carlos Gutiérrez decided to start bottling wines under his own name in 1998. Nowadays it’s one of the last family owned bodegas in the region. The Gutiérrez Colosía wineries are the only ones located by the riverside, right on the quay and probably the closest to the ocean of all sherry bodegas.

Tasting Notes

The nose is heady, redolent of raisins, plums and figs. Full, rich, unctuous molasses - like wine yet with a freshness that is very appealing. A good balance of acidity on the finish.

Food Matches

Pour generously over good quality vanilla ice cream.
