Amontillado fino el Tresillo

Second of two amontillado finos at lunch in Surtopia and one of the all time classic amontillados.

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.

Brilliant wine for a brilliant lunch.
