Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This is a new (at least to me) NV Criadera /A Fino que va para Amontillado, a category that was always informally referred to as Fino Amontillado, that goes beyond the Fino and starts its oxidative journey. It would be a very young Amontillado, but the disjointed phase when the oxidation has just started, or here not at all, as the wine feels very harmonious, very powerful with pungent and penetrating flavors, full bodied and sharpened by many years under flor. This is also exceptional. 1,048 bottles were filled in January 2017 (shown on the back label).
Between 6ºC and 8ºC
Biological ageing for more than 12 years with the traditional Soleras system in American oak casks.
Estimated transit time: 3-4 working days.
