A nutty and acidic wine, with aromas of pressed walnuts and toffee. Feels tight, sharp and narrow on the tongue, with blazing acidity and dry, limited, salty flavors that fold in toffee and sour fruit notes. Salty on the finish; smells great!
Pedro Romero Amontillado Viejisimo
Established in 1860 by Vincente Romero Carranza, Bodegas Pedro Romero is a family-owned winery located in Sanlucar de Barrameda at the mouth of the Guadalquivir River. Its location near the Atlantic Ocean and the Guadalquivir River (closer than any of the Sherry bodegas in Sanlucar) provides the humidity that feeds the flor essential to the creation of good Sherry. All its Sherry is made using the traditional Solera system of 600 L casks made from American white oak. The bodega has over 10 thousand casks for aging its sherries. In addition to the wines tasted here, Pedro Romero makes some exceptional, older Sherry, including its Prestige line averaging over 50 years of age. The importer is Frontier Wine Imports of Dover NJ.
