Bright amber colour with golden hints. This complex Amontillado shows intense notes of hazelnuts, caramel and sea salt together with smoky wood aromas, resulting from years of ageing in the bodegas of Jerez. Dry and elegant on the palate, powerful, with a long spicy aftertaste. Serve slightly chilled, between 13-14 ºC (55 - 57 ºF) and pair with artichokes, consommés, cold and smoked meats, even rich flavoured fish or seafood dishes. It is a perfect wine to accompany spicy Asian cuisine.

Round and honeyed on the nose, with brown sugar, flower notes, nuts and pretty much all that good amontillado offers. Flavors of white pepper, coffee and caramel have light citrus accents, and on the finish it dials things down and gets real narrow and precise. Very dry amontillado, but well made and true to the blueprint.

The non-vintage Rare Amontillado "Escuadrilla" is medium amber with a dry, nutty character and excellent grip.
