Tio Diego

Still in Surtopia and making full use of the opportunity.  


This is a classic amontillado from Valdespino and in a sense is the uncle (Diego) of the Inocente fino. It is a dark, old brass orange in colour and as clear as a bell. On the nose there are aromas of caramel and cream, and it also creamy in the mouth – a very lush feel to it. On the palate the first flavour is caramel, followed by bitter citrus – marmalade – and some nice acidity and spice at the back end. Very (too) drinkable.
