Emilio Lustau Los Arcos Dry Amontillado Sherry
Cool temperatures and relatively high humidity ensure the development of flor yeast cells which protect the underlying Palomino base wine. As the flor dies, the wine slowly develops into Amontillado.
Golden tawny, caramel colour with olive green edge. Wonderful nose with aroma of walnut & hazelnut over a background of flor yeast. The palate is drier than the more commercial Amontillado styles with a distinct nut and salt flavour with walnut and almonds being most defined. Excellent depth and concentration of flavours with the saltiness continuing, followed by a strong flor yeast and hazelnut aftertaste.
