Lustau Dry Amontillado Los Arcos Sherry

Another fortified wine. And a good one. This amontillado sherry is bright in the glass and a pale amber in colour. By way of aroma, it is a light-medium expression of straw, mixed nuts, salt and dried spices. On the palate, the wine hovers between dry and off-dry, with length approaching long, balanced acidity, and represents a moderate intensity excursion through hazelnuts, a touch of walnuts, salt and spices. An excellent wine. 89-90 points
