ALEXANDER JULES AMONTILLADO SHERRY 6/26 500ML BOTTLED MAY 2013

Officially it can only be categorized as an Amontillado, but Manzanilla Amontillada would have been more correct. In any case it spent around 5 years maturing as a Manzanilla (under flor). It then received a further fortification (which kills the flor) and matured another 5 years in the oxidative way. Alexander Jules stresses the minimal processing of the wine (fining, filtering, stabilizing, etc.). The wines are essentially bottled en rama, with just a cellulose plate filtration at time of saca and a 1 micron filtration at time of bottling. None of the wines are fined, cold stabilized or exposed to active carbon.
Nose: rather soft and feminine. Still close to a Manzanilla Pasada, with chamomile and bakerís yeast. Subtle hints of bacon fat and stables. Dried porcini. Sweeter toffee notes too, even subtle pastry notes. Whiffs of yellow flowers and orange peel. On the nose it doesnít have the tangy profile or the nuttiness of a true Amontillado.
Mouth: more Amontillado elements now, but again quite subtle, with an emphasis on elegance. Thereís a pleasant acidity of lemons and oranges. No sharpness whatsoever, but the subdued acidity is very prominent. Soft hints of toffee and a gentle zesty bitterness. Evolves on briny notes with just a hint of apples in the finish.
