Williams & Humbert, Don Zoilo Collection Dry Amontillado 12 years old, Jerez, Spain
(at New Malden, Surrey, 05 Jul 2020)
Drinking Window: 2020 - 2023
The Wine Society is one of the few UK mainstream retailers to offer a good sherry range, and that includes this stunning Amontillado, which will happily keep in the fridge for weeks after opening. Amontillado is a fino or manzanilla sherry that has been given further age in an oxidative way, without flor. Hence the colour will be lighter than an oloroso, but darker than a fino or manzanilla. A gorgeous amber in the glass, give this a swirl and aromas of citrus and nuts will leap from the glass. Tangy with lip smacking acidity and a lovely salinity, it's intense, complex and fully dry. Serve it slightly chilled with jamon, hard cheeses, olives and almonds. An elegant way to start the evening.
