This Amontillado is a blended wine, carefully made from a combination of wines that have been subject to biological and oxidative ageing. After the harvest, the fermented Palomino wine is aged in casks at 18% abv for oxidative ageing. Biological ageing takes place under a film of flor yeast during a phase known as sobretablas. Oxidative ageing is a result of the action of oxygen inside old American oak sherry cask and the traditional, yet dynamic system of criaderas and soleras. Though a blend of wines with both flor and oxidative ageing, it is the oxidative ageing that is the predominant process in the production of this wine and consequently defines its character.
Delighful light amber colour. The smooth aromas tell of ageing in wood and reveal a touch of cinnamon; these same characteristics appear on the palate. Smooth and honest in the mouth with a pleasant persistence.
With its colour of burnished gold and nutty aroma, this wine is perfect for drinking with appetizers such as Iberian ham, nuts and mature cheeses. Its unique flavour is a great match for fresh fruit salads and melon served with ham. If you prefer a traditional yet surprising combination with food from the south of Spain, try it alongside local fish such as dogfish and hake or kingclip fillets slowly cooked with saffron, bayleaves and peas. Also great with clams and popular with hot soups. At the end of the meal, it is remarkably good with fruits such as orange, peach and mandarin.
In order to best appreciate this wine’s special qualities, it should be served at an ambient temperature ofbetween 15º to 18º and always in a wine glass; this applies if drunk as an aperitif or if served with a meal.
