Tasting Notes

An extraordinarily fine, complex and sophisticated drink. Beautiful shining amber colour, fascinatingly complex raisined, nutty, tangy nose and a flavour displaying layer upon layer of deliciously plump sensations on the way.

Producer details

One of the most exceptional of the small, independent sherry houses, Fernando de Castilla was revitalised in 1999 by Jan Pettersen - a Norwegian with a passion for top quality sherry, and 15 years experience. After taking over the cellars of the Sherry shipper Jose Bustamante, located next door to the main facilities of Fernando de Castilla, Jan quickly established Fernando de Castilla as masters of the production and ageing of fine, unblended, untreated Sherries.

In the vineyard

Grapes are sourced from Fernando de Castilla's partners vineyards in the Jerez district.

In the winery

This Amontillado began life as a Fino. It spent 3 years under flor yeasts at 15%, but was then re-fortified to 17% abv and introduced to an Amontillado Solera - without flor and therefore exposed to air. It spends approximately 5 years in this solera.

Food Recommendations

Almonds, olives, cashews or a great wild mushroom soup
