Valdespino Amontillado Tio Diego NV

Winemaker's Notes:

"The wine is fermented naturally in very old oak barrels. They remain in this "sobretabla" for 1 year fermenting to about 12% alcohol and forming the flor. The wine is then removed from the lees and fortified to 15% and introduced to the first "criadera" or level of the Tio Diego solera. Aging: The wine undergoes biological aging under veil of flor for over 8 years and then fortified to above 17% for oxidative aging for 6+ years. There are 10 criaderas + the Solera." <br/><br/> "Medium intensity and amber in color. Clear notes of it having aged under flor, with aromas of dried fruits and hazel nuts and a touch of toffee or caramel. On the palate it is very dry, wide and well balanced with refreshing acidity." -Importer

Medium intensity and amber in color. Clear notes of it having aged under flor, with aromas of dried fruits and hazel nuts and a touch of toffee or caramel. On the palate it is very dry, wide and well balanced with refreshing acidity.

Smoky and taut, featuring date, dried orange peel, clove, singed sandalwood and salted caramel notes. The dry, nervy finish has lots of tension. Begs for salted almonds. Drink now.

The NV Tio Diego Amontillado Palomino from the Macharnudo vineyard, is fermented in botas, aged biologically for 10 years under flor in a solera separated from Inocente, and with a further five years of oxidative aging. It has a beautiful, perfumed nose of dry flowers, very elegant and clean, subtle, with some saline notes, both in the nose and the palate, where it is balanced, medium-bodied and elegant. A very fine Amontillado, showing superb value for a 15-year-old wine. Drink 2013–2019.
