Emilio Lustau Sherry Amontillado 'Los Arcos' / NV / 375mL
This wine, partially aged under a veil of yeast like the Finos (the biological process) completes its ageing without the yeast (oxidative process).
Golden tawny, caramel colour with olive green edge. Wonderful nose with aroma of walnut & hazelnut over a background of flor yeast. The palate is drier than the more commercial Amontillado styles with a distinct nut and salt flavour with walnut and almonds being most defined. Excellent depth and concentration of flavours with the saltiness continuing, followed by a strong flor yeast and hazelnut aftertaste.
Goes well with cured cheese, consommé, mushrooms, artichokes and green asparagus.
