Barbadillo Amontillado Medium Dry - Item Code: 07407
Discover Barbadillo Amontillado Medium Dry:
Barbadillo Amontillado Medium Dry emerges as a harmonious blend of complexity and balance, a testament to the meticulous craftsmanship of Andalusian viticulture. This particular expression is an embodiment of the traditional solera system, where fractional blending ensures a consistent profile year after year. The wine begins its journey as a Manzanilla, basking under the veil of flor yeast which imparts distinctive freshness and minerality. However, it’s the transition to Amontillado that defines its character; as the flor dissipates with time, controlled oxidation weaves in notes of almond, hazelnut, and dried fruits.
The grape at its heart is Palomino Fino, quintessential to Jerez wines. Grown in albariza soil—rich in chalk—it thrives here more than anywhere else on earth. The result is a wine that captures sunlight and sea breeze in liquid form. On the palate, Barbadillo Amontillado Medium Dry strikes an intricate balance between dryness and a subtle hint of residual sweetness—a duality that makes it versatile for pairing with food or savoring solo.
Its amber hue hints at maturity while inviting closer inspection. Swirling gently reveals layers: initially briny olives and maritime influences give way to autumnal notes like caramelized figs and toasted wood—a nod to its aging in American oak barrels which also lends it structure and finesse.
