Wine tasting note: Gonzalez Byass Amontillado 'del Duque'

Gonzalez Byass Amontillado 'del Duque'

1st Jun 1999 GBP21 Sherry Fortified Other

The tasting got more serious at this point - wines that have spent some 30 years maturing deserve a bit of attention… Deep ochre/mahogany at core to ochre with a touch of green at the rim. Nutty with intense fruit on the nose and amazingly fresh. Full bodied with intense oaky, nutty, varnish flavours and some fruit and tobacco. Bone dry with a long pungent finish. Complex but not me - a bit too austere for my palate
