Formerly known as Harveys Club Classic.
Amontillado is a rich amber colour, medium bodied and either dry or slightly sweet, depending on the style of the producer. Serve Amontillado lightly chilled with nuts or soups.
To create Amontillado, a mature Fino is allowed to lose its flor, either by not replenishing or by a secondary fortification.
Now exposed to air, the pale Fino then oxidizes into a nutty, richer, amber coloured sherry as it is further aged in cask.
