Amontillado fino El Tresillo


Oh my word this is even better than I remembered.  The artsy photo is slightly misleading – the wine is fresh from the cabinet and the condensation on the glass makes it look slightly cloudy when in reality it is as clear as a rich honey coloured bell.

The first waft of this across the nose was divine – hazelnuts in honey. A closer inspection and the salty minerals are more prominent but there is no missing the sweet caramel notes and nuttiness.

Then on the palate well, it is all there – zingy, salty buzz to the tongue, and then super dry and intense but with flavours that suggest sweetness: caramel, nuts and even orange marmalade. Lovely long finish that seems to actually get better.

A world class wine, no doubt.
