FAQs about Amontillado Sherry
Think of Amontillado sherry as aged type of Fino. It has matured in oak for a longer period of time which results in more nutty aromas than compared to a Fino. In terms of pairing Amontillado with food, it will work well with rice dishes such as Paella or Risotto. Amontillado will also be a perfect match for ripe cheese such as pecorino and cheddar. The Hairy Bikers have a nice and easy Primavera Risotto for you to make if you click here.
Amontillado is a dry style sherry wine. Amontillado has a darker colour and richer flavour than Fino. While still having hints of flor, it will be less fresh and citrusy than a Fino Sherry but with more elegance and structure. Amontillado is characterised by nutty aromas with wafts of tobacco and aromatic herbs and finishes with polished notes of oak. The fusion of two different ageing processes makes Amontillado wines extraordinarily complex and intriguing. It is a wonderful wine to pair with food.
Sherry has a number of different styles from bone dry Fino to really sweet Pedro Ximenez. If you are serving Fino Sherry then this pairs well with green olives, hard cheese and cold Gazpacho soup. If you are serving sweet Cream or Pedro Ximenez Sherry then these will pair well with soft cheeses.
