Rey Fernando de Castilla Antique Amontillado

£33.00
Vintage = NV
Producer = Jan Pietersen
Grape = Palomino
Colour = White
Size = 50cl
Information
Fine and bright but with an almost infinite (slight exaggeration) intensity on nose and palate - orange peel, eucalyptus, varnished wood.  

All amontillado starts as a Fino, usually fortified when the flor (a layer of yeast cells that form naturally on the surface of the fino) shows signs of fading.  No doubt supply/demand factors between fino and amontillado might mean that a fading flor need not be the only reason to fortify.  Regardless, the fino in this Antique Amontillado survived for 8 years beneath its blanket of flor prior to fortifying and then followed by a further 12 years ageing as a genuine amontillado. 

Supreme wine for enjoyment all the year round.
