An Amontillado is a sherry that matures under flor such as a fino or Manzanilla. After the first biological
ripening, the flor disappears very gradually, allowing oxidative ripening to begin. An Amontillado is a complex wine due to this twofold aging and somewhat more subtle than an Oloroso.
The grapes for this Juan Piñero Amontillado all come from one vineyard of lbariza soil (limestone) in Sanlucar; so a single vineyard. The Juan Piñero Amontillado is 100% made from the Palomino Fino grape with 30 years aging in American oak barrels in a 3-vat criadera system, of which about 12 years under (partial) flor.

This Juan Piñero Amontillado is delicate and complex with nutty aromas in the nose such as hints of almond and
hazelnut, smoky with notes of the sea. On the palate this sherry is dry, nutty, roasted with smoky and salty notes with a long finish. This lovely Amontillado VORS is perfect with soups, stocks, white meat, fatty fish, wild mushrooms, asparagus, artichokes, semi-aged cheeses and perfect with the real Belotta Jamom . After opening, store in a dark and cool place for up to 2 weeks after opening.

From 2013 they started bottling themselves. They also took the stocks and old brand Maruja Manzanilla from
Bodegas Terry about.The bodega is located in the middle of the town of Sanlucar on Calle Trasbolsa near the river Guadalquivir. In order to retain as much taste as possible, the wines are only very visible filtered.
