This dark-coloured Sherry begins with aromatics of roasted Arabica coffee, vanilla cream and roasted dates with red cherry preserves. The viscosity is lovely, showing off red cherry pie, cigar box, toffee and roasted date flavors that lead to an exceedingly long finish.
On the palate, it is intense, sweet and tasty, with an excellent acid sweet balance that makes it fresh and that confers a great volume and persistence.
Delgado Zuleta is the oldest family-owned winery in the Sherry district maturing Manzanilla Sherry and “Tierra de Cádiz” still white wines.
Since its foundation in 1744 the bodega has maintained a commitment to quality by being at the cutting edge of Sherry winemaking. This is reflected by the ongoing modernisation of its facilities coupled with an expert team that is respectful of our heritage and dedicated to the future.

Even though it was founded in 1744 by Fransisco Gil de Ledesma y Sotomayor, a knight and mayor of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, it gets its actual name from José Maria Delgado Zuleta who married with one of the descendants of Ledesma at the end of the 18th century.
