Bodegas Tradicion Amontillado 30 Year Old Sherry VORS

96 Points, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate – "The NV Tradicion Amontillado VORS, certainly has the more complex and subtle nose of all these VORS and is on average 45 years old. It has a very clean nose, with elegance and complexity, powerful but subtle notes of hazelnuts, honey and even some dates. The medium-bodied palate shows a sharp wine with strong salinity, it has the power and the lightness, in a very difficult combination. Drink 2013-2020."

Description

This wine, whose long aging, initially as fino under a film of yeast and subsequently without it, is an exponent of elegance, complexity and centuries-old tradition. For this lord of wines, the exquisite selection of musts and their settlement in solerajes with multiple American oak criaderas that allow them to be bottled in limited series is essential.

This amontillado is a benchmark. Made from a single variety Palomino grape, it uses an ageing process in American oak barrels, soaked in wine by the soleras system, firstly as fino under flor a veil of yeast and then, and for a longer time, without it. Due to the large number of scales, this step results in a subtle evolution of its organoleptic properties.

Amber in colour with iodised tones, it has an elegant, complex and highly evolved nose, notes of hazelnut and a very powerful, dry and lasting persistence. Its forty-plus years of ageing and limited production guarantee an exclusive quality.
