Valedspino Contrabandista Amontillado
The Wine Advocate "The NV Contrabandista is a blend of the style called medium dry that is usually a very commercial category of cheap sherries. It is an off-dry blend of Palomino produced in an Amontillado way (biological + oxidative aging) and around 5% Pedro Ximénez with 30 grams of residual sugar which averages 18 years of age. It's has a mahogany color, with a bright amber border with aromas of dates and raisins that give a sapid, bittersweet sensation in a medium-bodied palate of moderate sweetness. This is easy to drink. Valdespino belongs to Grupo Estévez, who ages and amazing 35,000 butts of sherry in their winery in the outskirts of Jerez."
