Producer's Notes

Literally, Amontillado means “in the style of Montilla”. Our Carlos VII is an Amontillado that has been aging for more than 15 years in our traditional “Solera System” during and after the flor, gaining complexity and full round aromas while retaining the freshness of its origins as a Fino. An harmonious blend of finesse, elegance and age.

NOSE: Pungent and complex bouquet, inimitable nutty and dried fig deep flavour and character, both soft and strong.
PALATE: Silky dry on palate with a long, complex and elegant finish.

Perfect dry aperitif, ideal with smoked food and crumbly cheeses. It is also an excellent ingredient for all soups and sauces, especially consommé.

Wine Advocate: 93 Points

The NV Amontillado Carlos VII has a medium/dark color, notes of toffee, roasted nuts and coffee, but finishes dry with great acidity and penetrating almond-paste-like flavors. This is pretty impressive and the Solera that is the base of this cuvée is at least 15 years of age. Drink now through 2030.

Wine Spectator: 91 Points

Takes a dry, taut approach from the start, with singed orange peel and bitter almond notes lining the green tea, dried passion fruit, Earl Grey tea and toasted parchment paper flavors. The long finish shows nice tension. Drink now. 500 cases made.
