Bodega César Florido was founded in 1887 and is currently maintained by César Florido, a fifth generation descendant of the founder. The winery is the oldest wine cellar in Chipiona, located about eight kilometers from Sanlúcar de Barrameda on the road leading to Rota. César Florido is one of only two wine cellars in Chipiona that still operate outside of the cooperative. While technically outside the D.O.’s Zona de Crianza, Chipiona produces some of the area’s most unusual wines, which are what true César fans are looking for.

Winemaking

Natural sweet wine, from Moscatel de Alejandría variety grapes, whose fermentation is quenched by adding wine alcohol. This Moscatel Dorado perfectly represents the traditional concept of Moscatel de Chipiona.

Its aging was oxidative under the traditional DDOO system of soleras and criaderas, in American oak barrels with a capacity of less than 1,000 litres. This type of wine is produced in the winery itself, starting with a must of the year to which alcohol is added up to 17.50º, undergoing oxidative aging from the beginning.

Tasting notes

It is of intense, brilliant and glyceric old gold tones. Rich aromas of muscat, cocoa and liquor. Hints of syrup and honey. In the mouth it is tasty, enveloping and with a touch of oak. Long finish with hints of toasted caramel.

Pairing recommendation

Blue cheeses, pastries and pates. Ideal wine to drink between meals.
