Lustau Solera Reserva Dry Amontillado "Los Arcos" NV

Sherry is Sexy. A learning exercise for me here: basically Amontillado is a Fino Sherry whereby the yeast the wine is fermented under - flor - dies off and the wine is exposed to oxygen.

Resultant wine, in this case, shows a nutty complexity with hints of candied citrus. The palate is somewhat at odds with this aromatic profile. Lighter and drier than I was certainly expecting. Shows a touch spirity towards the finish, provides a second wind and finishes long and nutty. 89 - Good
