The Oddbins Take

Sometimes we really wonder how certain winemaking techniques were arrived at. Sherry making techniques in particular.


After fortifying the wine to halt the alcoholic fermentation and keep it sweet (fair enough), someone must have then thought, ‘what if we let it sit in a wooden tub for, maybe, five, no no… ten, sod it make that thirty years. Yup, then let’s see what it tastes like then’.


Well, these bonkers Andalusians, whoever they are, were obviously geniuses with much acumen, as this is precisely the way to produce moreish, almost umami-tasting Amontillado like this.


The 30 years in American oak casks has transformed the humble Palomino grape into an unctuous, vanilla, cedar and fig-flavour bonanza of a Sherry. Three cheers for the vinous vanguard!
