Amontillado Sherry Colosia 750, amber, dry, nutty, oxidised sherry, perfect aperitif with tapas, salted nuts or a beef consommé. Made by fortifying the wine made from Palamino grapes, so that no flor yeast develops but a slow, controlled oxidation is allowed to take place. This gives the amontillado its trademark amber colour. It's then aged through the solera system to provide consistency. Deliciously nutty with a slight salinity, I find a chilled glass of this gets my juices flowing before a meal - but it's also great served alongside broths or with chicken or rabbit.
