El Maestro Sierra "1830" Amontillado VORS Jerez de la Frontera (375ml)

SKU #1081087 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Next in sweetness is the light amber colored non-vintage (Vinos Viejos) Amontillado 1830 VORS, which has been aged at least 50 years in the solera system. It is racy and intense and would work well with lobster bisque.  (2/2011)

K&L Notes

El Maestro Sierra is a terrific boutique Sherry bodega in Jerez de la Frontera. Originally founded by a master carpenter, Jose Antonio Sierra, who was in the business of creating barrels for other Sherry bodegas, the bodega is now owned by three women. That's right, in this very male dominated segment of the Spanish wine business, three women call the shots! El Maestro Sierra has terrific older soleras, including this incredibly rare, concentrated, rather muscular and spicy rendition of Amontillado. Average age here is estimated to be 70 years! (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish Wine Buyer)
