Description

Details

One of the most exceptional of the small, independent sherry houses, Fernando de Castilla was revitalised in 1999 by Jan Pettersen - a Norwegian with a passion for top quality sherry, and 15 years’ experience at Osborne. After taking over the cellars of the Sherry shipper Jose Bustamante, located next door to the main facilities of Fernando de Castilla, Jan quickly established Fernando de Castilla as masters of the production and ageing of fine, unblended, untreated Sherries. The bodega's reputation is based on the excellence of the Antique range of intensely pure and complex single solera Sherries whose award winning packaging makes them even more impressive. The Antique Palo Cortado was awarded 'Best Dry Fortified Trophy' at the 2011 New Wave Spanish Wine Awards, whilst the Antique Amontillado scooped the trophy for ‘Dry Fortified over £10’ at the 2011 Decanter World Wine Awards.

Vineyards
Grapes are sourced from Fernando de Castilla's partners’ vineyards in the Jerez district. The soil type is Albariza. Picking takes place in early September.

Vinification
This Amontillado began life as a Fino. It spent 3 years under flor yeasts at 15%, but was then re-fortified to 17% abv and introduced to an Amontillado Solera - without flor and therefore exposed to air. It spends approximately 5 years in this solera.

Tasting Notes
An extraordinarily fine, complex and sophisticated drink. Beautiful shining amber colour, fascinatingly complex raisined, nutty, tangy nose and a flavour displaying layer upon layer of deliciously plump sensations on the way.
