Lustau Solera Reserva Dry Amontillado Sherry Los Arcos NV
A textbook Amontillado of great maturity. Naturally dry and soft, its palate gives a hint of wood and smoky raisins. A powerful and distinctive nutty bouque. Better Amontillado would be difficult to find. Awarded Silver Medal at IWC 2005. Drink as a warming apéritif. Serve slightly chilled. Alcohol:18.5% by volume. Grape Variety:Palomino Fino.
External Reviews for Lustau Solera Reserva Dry Amontillado Sherry Los Arcos
A classic dark Amontillado for soup or marrow on toast, this wine tastes of roasted bones, of tangerine and almond oil, of fresher fruit, like the flesh of pear. The dark, unctuous character parallels Madeira, but itandrsquo;s both fresher and more pleasingly bitter in a Sherry sense.
Reticent aromas of almonds and limestone give way to this wineandrsquo;s generous flavors of green apple and a subtle touch of orange zest. Itandrsquo;s all shaped by spritzy, mouthwatering acidity. Best Buy.
This very affordable Sherry offers a terrific combination of freshness in its walnut and iodine notes and the caramel-molasses component derived from oxidation, making this vibrant Amontillado a winner. Delicious nut and molasses aftertaste. Drink now.
Last reviewed in 1994 and rated three Stars. Bronze/burnished orange color; unblemished purity. Initial inhalations encounter deep aromas of leather bound books, butterscotch, and prunes; more time in the glass deepens the leathery aspect and adds a pleasing note of walnut. Entry is lean, clean, tart, and astringent; midpalate features the acidic dried fruit element that dominates the taste profile. Ends cleansing, very tart, and austere. Three Star rating stands. Recommended.
Light and approachable, with the soft texture of dry white wine, this offers freshness, salinity and soft, nutty touches. For pickled sardines.
The dry, medium amber-hued non-vintage Dry Amontillado Los Arcos offers good body as well as a heady personality.
Round style, yet not without good bite underneath. Boasts caramel, bitter cocoa and iodine notes, picking up roasted nut on the lingering finish. Drink now.
