Valdespino, Amontillado “Tio Diego” Sherry
£24.50 Per Unit
As recommended by Master Sommelier Christopher Bates His “Top Picks”
“aged for 10 years side by side (with Valdespino Tio Dego) The only difference is that whereas Inocente ages under its yeast flor for the whole 10 years, in Tio Dego the flor is extinguished after about 5 years, letting the wine interact with the oxygen.”
This Sherry comes from 25 year old vines grown in s single vineyard called Macharnudo Alto and was fermented naturally in neutral barrels. The wine remains in “sobretabla” for 1 year, is fortified to 15% and introduced to the Inocente solera, where it ages under flor for 10 years.
