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 old Palomino Fino vineyards around Jerez and coastal Sanlucar.
From some of the first pressings, this starts life as a Fino until the flor dies and the fortification is increased. After this it ages oxidatively for many years. This is approximately 20 years old from soleras in the cellars in Miraflores and Calle del Mar.
