Diatomists, Amontillado 12 Year Old, Jerez, Spain
(at Weekday Wines Tasting, 05 Feb 2023)
Drinking Window: 2023 - 2025
The innovative Diatomists team works with selected growers in Jerez, putting as much emphasis on terroir as the solera system in the production of their Sherries. Their excellent range includes this vibrant Amontillado, bursting with salty, richly savoury aromas, with layers of roasted nuts, dried apricots, dried orange peel and ripe lemon. Intense, rich palate that unfurls with impressive depth of flavour and persistence; rich and rounded savoury tones, cut through with electric acidity for a bone-dry, lip-smacking saline finish. Super!
