Classic Dry Amontillado Sherry Fernando de Castilla 75cl
This classic dry Amontillado sherry from Fernando de Castilla is aged for many years in oak barrels. An extraordinary fine and complex drink. Aromas of raisins, nut and orange. The palate is complex and layered with further nutty, raisin and tangy notes on a plump palate.
Grapes are sourced from Fernando de Castilla's partners vineyards in the Jerez district. The soil type is Albariza. Picking takes place in early September. This Amontillado began life as a Fino. It spent 3 years under flor yeasts at 15%, but was then re-fortified to 17% abv and introduced to an Amontillado Solera - without flor and therefore exposed to air. It spends approximately 5 years in this solera.
Serve as an aperitif with salted almonds, mature cheddar, walnut and figs.
