Herederos de Argueso Amontillado Sanlucar de Barrameda

SKU #1061689

What a terrific Amontillado! Produced from their very old solera, this is a completely dry amontillado that shows beautiful aromatics: imagine toffee and orange candies, but without any of the sweetness. On the palate, the signature Amontillado intensity and nuttiness are evident, but with the citric, salty tang of one made in the seaside town of Sanlucar de Barrameda. This is a terrific, dry, invigorating aperitif, especially with cheeses.

This ultra dry, penetrating Amontillado is exactly the right wine to have on hand for an elegant aperitif. With a bright rancio nose and flavor to spare, this is one great example of the fantastic value that Sherry provides to fans of older, complex wine. It has a finish that one cannot get any other way than with patience, it is so long and full of nuance. I recently added a few ounces to chicken stock for some leeks that I was brazing and the leeks stole the show away from my fancy wild salmon! Great Amontillado!

Real deal amontillado: bright, tangy, salty, slightly nutty and delicious. An awesome aperitif, especially after the first chill of autumn hits. Try on its own, with nuts and cheeses, or with any of your favorite soup recipes.
