Amontillado Príncipe
  • Appearance

    Beautiful amber colour. Clear and bright in appearance.
  • Nose

    Intense and elegant on the nose; a tempting seductress. Saline nuances and a trace of toasted hazelnuts.
  • Palate

    Excellent balance and structure with a long finish. The typical dryness of amontillado sherry stands out and highlights its complexity. Lingering and satisfying aftertaste.
  • Temp. Consumo

    12º - 13
  • Food pairing

    Traditional: Artichoke casserole / Innovative: Red tuna ceviche.

Details

Our centenary soleras offer Sherries of exceptional age.  The most demanding palates agree; subtlety in its purest form.

Points of interest

The amontillado sherries are one of the most interesting wines from the Jerez region.  They first begin life as a manzanilla undergoing biological ageing for eight years under the unique yeast film known as the velo de flor.  They then undergo seven years of oxidative ageing.  A total of 15 years ageing affords these wines a range of magnificent characteristics.
