Whether due to the changeable conditions in its origin or the wide range available depending on the balance between the two types of aging, there are few wines that are as interesting and complex as Amontillado sherry. It’s a surprising and seductive wine with phenomenal pairing possibilities.
When a Fino sherry is aged for more than seven or eight years, the velo de flor reaches the end of its lifecycle and holes open up in the surface of the yeast layer, oxidising the wine. When this happens, the wine is called an amontillado.
