Pérez Barquero "1955 Solera Cinquentenario" Amontillado Montilla-Moriles (Previously $200)

SKU #1284570 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The new range of very old wines, between the Gran Barquero/La Cañada range (25/30 years) and the Soleras Fundacionales (80/90 years), is released with the brand of the winery's 50th birth year; as such, it is called NV 1955 Amontillado Solera Cincuentenario, but they are not wines from 1955 - which is rather confusing. It is a 'solera' of blended vintages and therefore a non-vintage wine averaging perhaps 40-50 years of age. In any case, this is an extraordinary old Amontillado, with great balance between old age and elegance, making it very feminine (yeah, you can kill me now!), perfumed and subtle. The palate is very intense, deeply saline and long, tasty and elegant, with superb balance. They have taken 200 bottles in November 2015 and plan to do a further four sacas of approximately the same volume, and the front labels have both the information about the saca and the bottle number.
