At first sip, this feels buttery, with aromas of toasted nuts and sweet spices. Little by little, the flavors head toward a drier place, the wine becoming less aromatic with air, but more structured. It ends up feeling austere, vertical, powerful, the sort of Sherry to drink with sea urchins.

This blossoms quickly in the glass, a light toffee note giving way to a dry-edged mix of singed almond, alder and walnut husk flavors, all backed by a bitter orange hint on the finish. Drink now.

 

Winemaker Notes

An authentic Amontillado produced from fine Manzanilla, dry and deeply golden in color. Clearly reminiscent of its late Manzanilla stages with salt air on the nose. Aging has rounded the palate naturally, balanced and long with salt brine lingering.
