The bottle of NV Amontillado Viejo that I tasted must have been bottled for some time, as it showed a strong reduction that requires some extended decanting. This can be detected by the burn-match notes. If you find this in an old bottle of Sherry, decant if for a few hours, or even better, one full day. This 25-year-old wine has a dark amber color, the nose shows some caramel and incense notes, intermixed with orange rind and some curry. The sharp palate reveals a medium-bodied wine with very good acidity, and flavors. I believe there is a VORS, even better version of this wine. Drink 2013-2018.
The Herederos de Argueso winery in Sanlucar de Barrameda, primarily known by its Manzanillas, was created in 1822 by Leon de Argueso, who purchased an old bodega and its wines from a solera of about 50 years of age at the time. The business was kept in the family until it was sold in 2006.
