The city of Bristol has been associated with the wines of Spain since medieval times when casks were shipped direct into the old docks in the heart of the city. Sherry has formed a key part of Bristol’s trade and Averys has been shipping quality Sherry from Spain for nearly 200 years.
Amontillado sherry is aged first under flor (as a fino sherry) but is then given further oxidative ageing. Amontillado Sherry is therefore unique in that it shows characteristics of both maturation styles
Some Amontillados are sweetened but this is a true Amontillado and is refreshingly dry with nutty flavours and salty aromas
Made exclusively for Averys by Barbadillo, currently in the hands of the 7th generation of the family
Tasting note:A true Amontillado with 10 years ageing, there’s a hint of warm crunchy caramel on the nose. Beautifully clean with hints of tea, and deliciously dry. – Mimi Avery
