Additional Information: The sandy area around Chipiona is the prime spot for Moscatel grapes in the sherry region. Within this small coastal village, just west of Sanlúcar, the leading producer is César Florido. Family-run since 1887, they own 21 ha of vineyards around Chipiona and in the pago Miraflores and Balbaína of Sanlúcar, keeping control of the entire winemaking process.

The company has been working as an almacenista for most of its existence but started releasing their own bottlings in 1988. As they are outside of the traditional sherry ageing triangle, the wines bear the Zona de Producción back label.

The wine is a blend of 75% dry Olorosso and 25% Moscatel (which only make up 1-2% of all plantings in the sherry region) which is then aged in oak barrels, using the traditional solera system, for about 5 years.
