Description

To create Amontillado, a mature Fino is allowed to lose its flor, either by not replenishing or by a secondary fortification. A full bodied sherry with great balance this was previously known as Harveys Club Amontillado, but it has been repackaged and renamed. It contains over 30 blends of Fino, Oloroso, Amontillado and the special Pedro Ximenez grape and is a global icon of sherry.

Now exposed to air, the pale Fino then oxidizes into a nutty, richer, amber coloured sherry as it is further aged in cask. Amontillado is a rich amber colour, medium bodied and either dry or slightly sweet, depending on the style of the producer. Very salty, which is amplified by a high acidity, with more citrus peels, hazelnuts and roasted almonds. This is rather on the oxidative side of the spectrum, but we still find echoes of a coastal Fino profile underneath. Founded in as far back as 1796 (making them over 200 years old) Harveys of Bristol have since been one of the UK's largest providers of Sherry to the UK.

It is easy to draw parallels to Gonzalez Byass’ VORS range, which also contains lightly sweetened Oloroso and Palo Cortado but an Amontillado that is totally dry.

Harveys is a brand of Bodegas Fundador and while they’re mostly known for Harveys Bristol Cream, they also offer an interesting VORS range.

There's an oxidative side from the long ageing, but overall it is quite a powerhouse, showing a piercing salinity and acidity. While I’m not convinced she was an avid sherry drinker, Harveys is the only Spanish food brand to get a Royal Warrant from the late Queen. However the real reason for featuring this sherry now, is the death of Queen Elizabeth II of course.Also sign me up for newsletters so I can get special offers, recommendations, and expert advice to my inbox!

We have tried many amontillado's - some much more expensive than Harveys but we keep coming back -its got the right degree of dryness but is so smooth.
