Product Description

Flor doesn't always stay intact, which means the sherry can be exposed to oxygen and Amontillados are the result. Amontillados take on a brown hue, due to extended contact with air inside the solera barrels. And rather than the crisp, saline flavors of finos and manzanillas, amontillados deliver oxidized notes of nuttiness, sautéed mushrooms and a richness best described as umami. Perfect pairings include medium-bodied soups or flavorfully sauced white meats like pork, pheasant or rabbit. This one comes from Bodegas Valdospino, one of the oldest bodegas in the area.

93 Points - "Extremely dry, this austere Amontillado comes from the white chalky albariza soils of the famed Macharnudo vineyard. It aged under flor for about eight years, and then spent eight more years aging oxidatively before being bottled. At first, it shows only the classic flavors of iodine and salt, with enchanting sea breeze notes. You have to wait for the fruit flavors to emerge, notes of roasted white fruit and nuts emerging in the midst of its cool flavors. Only for fans of super-dry Sherry, this is ideal for mojama, cured tuna belly." - Wine & Spirits (Oct 2015)
