In 2016, Argüeso was acquired by Bodegas Yuste, with a view to increasing the reputation of the wines. They have invested heavily in Argueso, including the employment of their own team of in-house coopers who have been tasked with repairing and upgrading all the barrels within the company as it returns to its former glory.
The 1822 range is a completely new venture from Argueso, using older material and more contemporary packaging than before .
From a combination of Palomino Fino vineyards around Jerez and coastal Sanlucar.
Aged oxidatively in oak barrels as part of a solera system. This wine is a blend of old barrels from the cellars in Miraflores and Calle del Mar, around 10 years of age on average.
Tasting Note: Round, soft prune, coffee and walnut flavours. Dry and silky-textured with tremendous depth and length.
Food Match: Ideal with pork, pigeon breast or lamb stew.
Closure: Natural Cork
