Amontillado 2016 (Sacristía AB)

Write a Review

Quite a treat. Very complex, with lots of tiny nuances. In no particular order: dried apricots, polished exotic woods, beeswax, hay and other farmy notes, sea spray, hazelnuts, orange peel, molasses and salted caramel. Subtle minerals, as well as hints of old roses and warm wood. punzante, with a spike of acidity and salinity right away, but always a certain feminine elegance. Very, very wide and with a rather glyceric mouthfeel. You can tell this took a long time evolving from Manzanilla to Amontillado. Salted almonds, hazelnuts, brine. A faint touch of smoke. Lovely warm, nutty aroma in the empty glass.
