Oloroso VORS is the old Oloroso from Bodegas Tradicion. A VORS sherry must be at least 30 years old and in the case of the Oloroso VORS from Bodegas Tradicion this will be closer to 40-45 years old. It is a highly respected and famous sherry and is a permanent item on the wine list of well-known top restaurants such as El Bulli and The Fat Duck. The Oloroso VORS is bottled twice a year with a typical yield of 1800-2500 bottles maximum. All wines have a handwritten lot number and year on the label. The wine has notes of balsamic vinegar, leather, roasted coffee, cocoa and cedar. At the start the wine is friendly, rich, round and creamy, but when passing through the throat we find a powerful wine, long, naughty with elegant medicinal notes and toasted and bitter chocolate in the aftertaste.

Bodegas Tradicion is despite its name one of the youngest wineries in Jerez and was founded in 1998, something that is not often seen as most of the top sherry houses have existed for generations. It is also unusual for a winery to only sell old wines, especially at such a young company. But this is what Bodegas Tradicion does. They also have an icon of a winemaker in his name namely Jose Maria Quiros, who was a winemaker at Agustin Blazquez and later at Domecq and also an advisor at Alvear Montilla-Moriles for 15 years. The basis is an 18th century solera with 7 criaderas, designed by Agustin Blazquez and later taken over by Bodegas Domecq, as well as a 19th century solera designed by Alfred Gilbey.

Regarding the sherries of Bodegas Tradición, he says: "Expensive? One small sip will stay with you for hours, and apart from the fino they will stay open for a long time. A glass every day for a month: that's a euro a day for the most fascinating wines in the world. world."

Vineyard for Bodegas Tradición Oloroso VORS Sherry

Bodegas Tradición is one of Spain's leading sherry producers. The sherry is made according to the traditional solera system, is given an unprecedented long wood aging and is produced in small numbers. The logo of Bodegas Tradición shows a man pouring the wine manually, this is not a lie. During the production process, work is carried out according to traditional methods, without the use of machines. The result of the manual mixing of the wines and the long wood aging is a top quality product with the same, consistent quality every year. No coloring agents are added to the sherries and they are not filtered or heated. This is 'the real thing', sherry as sherry should be. Bodegas Tradición was founded in 1998 by Joaquín Rivero. At first glance, this seems like a relatively new winery from Jerez, but the origin of this house is 'Bodega CZ, J.M. Rivero'. This bodega dates back to the year 1650 and is known as the oldest sherry bodega in Spain. Bodegas Tradición is therefore the successor of a bodega that still did business with the royal houses of Spain and Portugal. The name Tradición refers to a return of the traditional style of sherry, but also to the continuity of the family business.
