Valdespino, Tio Diego Single Vineyard Amontillado Sherry, Andalusia, Spain
Tasting Note: An amontillado that is a delicious gateway to the joys of oloroso sherry.
Medium-intensity amber in color, this wine has rancio aromas of caramel, cinnamon, clove, brioche, butter, roasted hazelnut and butterscotch.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied sherry has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose with a smooth, buttery texture and lots of rich midpalate complexity complimented by a rich, generous mouthfeel.
Bottle Note: Macharnudo Vineyard.
Importer: The Rare Wine Co., Brisbane, California
