Barbadillo, Medium Amontillado, Sherry, Jerez, Spain
These wines began their life as Manzanillas and then the flor was allowed to die away so they continued their maturation with exposure to the air in the barrel. Therefore the wine has a deep topaz colour with roasted almond character yet retains the characteristic tangy flavour of Manzanilla. This wine has been slightly sweetened with Pedro Ximenez to give it a raisined edge.
With its tantalizing colour of burnished gold and nutty aroma, this wine is perfect for drinking with appetizers such as Iberian ham, nuts and mature cheeses. Its unique flavour is a great match for fresh fruit salads and melon served with ham. If you prefer a traditional yet surprising combination with food from the south of Spain, try it alongside local fish such as dogfish and hake or kingclip fellets slowly cooked with saffron, bay leaves and peas. Also great with clams and popular with hot soups. At the end of the meal, it is remarkably good with fruits such as orange, peach and mandarin. In order to best appreciate this wine´s special qualities, it should be served at an ambient temperature of between 15º to 18º and always in a wine glass; this applies if drunk as an aperitif or if served with a meal.
