It comes from the solera of manzanilla Zuleta. This young Amontillado still evokes its Manzanilla origins. Notes of oxidative aging characteristic of old amontillados are quite appreciable.
This wine begins as Manzanilla and therefore has a biological aging in a first phase, but after losing the characteristic layer of flor yeast it undergoes an oxidative stage. 100% Palomino variety, with about 8 or 9 years of aging in American oak casks, using the traditional “Criaderas & Solera” system. It is 17.5% ABV and it is available in 37.5 and 75 cl bottles.
It is clean and bright with an intense golden color. With very intense nose and nuances of biological aging such as nuts and grains, this wine also shows the typical aromas of wood and oxidative aging. On the nose it is dry, light, salty and very complex, with a soft mid-palate and persistence that make it an excellent Amontillado to drink with friends.
Ideal for beginners in the art of wine pairings as it perfectly complements options as diverse as white meats, soups and vegetables bisques, oily fish and all kinds of rice dishes, among many others.
