Barbadillo Amontillado Criadera Selection

Barbadillo Amontillado Criadera Selection

WHY WE LOVE IT

  • A savory wine with both biological and oxidative aging.
  • The oxidative aging of Amontillado takes place in Mil Pesetas, an old cellar dating back to the 1700s.
  • The Barbadillo family is committed to managing the complete winemaking process, from vineyard to bottle. The results are wines of great personality that express the origin and the dual terroir of the vineyards and the cellars where they age.
  • This wine is grown, processed and developed in D.O. Jerez-Xérez-Sherry.

Varietal Composition: 100% Palomino Fina

Elaboration: The Criaderas and Solera system is used and the wine undergoes biological and oxidative aging in American oak.

Tasting Notes: Dark amber in color this Amontillado is ‘En Rama’ (unfiltered). With an elegant hazelnut caramel aroma; dry smooth, long and nutty on the palate.

PRODUCER BACKGROUND

Founded in 1821, Barbadillo is without question Sanlucar de Barrameda’s most iconic producer of Sherry.  The thing we appreciate most about Barbadillo is that they’ve remained staunchly committed to tradition in the face of continued growth – Base wines are all still fermented in house through the company’s network of sixteen historic bodegas and the variety and depth of their soleras is breathtaking.  With the Sherry category seeing more excitement than ever before in history, Barbadillo is delivering big time, with a panoply of single vineyard and heirloom releases. From their groundbreaking ‘Solear’ Manzanilla to their almost impossible to procure ‘Reliquia’ series and everything in between, tasting through the Barbadillo lineup is an inspirational and energizing experience.
