Wine Callejuela Amontillado La Casilla (0.5 L)
Alcohol content i
The Amontillado La Casilla made by Bodega Callejuela is the result of letting Manzanilla Pasada mature by means of oxidative ageing. It turns into a flavoursome, mineral Amontillado with classic notes of caramel and dried fruit and nuts. A fresh Sanlúcar Amontillado, perhaps a little less dense than others, but extremely elegant.
It captivates with its intense mahogany colour and exuberant nose, garnished with vanilla and hints of hydrocarbons. Hazelnuts, aromatic herbs, dark tobacco, toasted caramel... Its aromatic array seems inexhaustible. A very concentrated and at the same time most pleasant palate, with very well-balanced acidity. A long, evocative finish with a saline and oaky nuance.

The best series of sherry I have tasted
Really wellmade and refined amontillado. The Callejuela wines are simply great. The manzanilla, amontillado and oloroso sherries make a fine set with their variation of classic aromas.
