Amontillado is a classic Jerez wine, which had a initial biological ageing phase under flor, followed by an oxidative one. This combination in its ageing makes amontillado wines very particular, remarkable for the biological ageing character despite having spent many years in contact with the air. This one, with an average of over 43 years of age, is the result of blend of a selection of soleras from Jerez, El Puerto de Santa Maria and Sanlúcar, and has some unique characteristics.
