Single Cask Amontillado

Alonso, Single Cask Amontillado, more than 150 years old

There is wood underpinning the nose, then on the palate concentration and dryness washed with juice, intensity of roasted nut and burnt muscovado; this is a physical presence in the mouth, a sense of something ancient, elemental, alive. Despite its great age, this wine is merely at a stage of development. In 2119 there will be critics in silver jumpsuits (with their water-powered hovermobiles tethered to the railings of 67 Pall Mall) tasting a wine that will look very much like this, only 100 years older.
