Fernando de Castilla
100% Palomino Fino
Grapes are grown on estate vineyard “Pago Balbaino” on white albariza soils containing 70-80% limestone.
The solera of the Antique Fino is used to feed the third criadera of Antique Amontillado, which averages more than 20 years. After over 5 years of biological aging, the wine is fotified to 19 degrees and undergoes oxidative aging in the traditional soleras and criaderas system. The wine is bottled only once a year, in the winter, with the cold weather acting as a natural clarifier so very little filtration is needed.

“The NV Antique Amontillado is amber-colored and has a subtle nose of tobacco, some iodine, pollen, beeswax and hazelnuts. The medium- to full-bodied palate shows lots of concentration and acidity, with a very intense finish. 4,000 bottles are produced yearly.”
