Pale amber or medium gold? Salty sand and Manzanilla flower or oxidized white wine in a way, some marmalade. On the palate salty, slightly bitter expressive and tart. Just goes to show that these wines that have already passed through an oxidative ageing process can last for almost forever. #amontillado #montilla #perezbarquero — a year ago
Aged first under flor as a fino or manzanilla, then fortified to 17% to kill off the yeast and allow oxidation. Balances tension of lean texture with oxidation's complex, heady aromas.
What makes it special?
A model bodega focusing on small production, high-quality wines dedicated to tradition, this wine is first aged for 8 years under flor, then another 12 in the solera system. It is not for slugging back - this is an intense, intellectual, wine-geek's wine.
