An old cooper, whose shop was located in Puerto de Santa Maria?s meat market, put some of his barrels to personal use by making his own Oloroso. He would share his Oloroso with the butchers who were his neighbors and eventually named it in their honor: ?Blood and the Worker? or Sangre y Trabajadero. Nutty, rich aromas. The palate is almost sweet with nutty flavors and hints of the nearby ocean. Guti�rrez Colos�a is located in the town of El Puerto de Santa Mar�a. Established in 1838 on the banks of the Guadalete River, it is today the only local winery that benefits from this placement. The combined effects of the river and the ocean breezes create a very active flor that remains on the wine year round, yielding special Sherry which illustrates the concept that in Jerez, location is everything.
