Taste Flavor
info
Wine sweetness is a measure of the amount of sugar present in a wine. Sweetness in wine can range from bone dry (no sugar present) to lusciously sweet (high sugar content). Sweetness is usually determined by the variety and ripeness of the grapes used, as well as the winemaking process.
Sweetness
info
The alcohol level in wine is a measure of the amount of alcohol present in the beverage. The degree of heat or ‘burn’ at the back of the throat is roughly proportional to the amount of alcohol consumed. It ranges from Very Low to Very High.
Alcohol
info
Wine intensity is a measure of the concentration of flavor and aroma compounds in a wine.The stronger and more noticeable the flavors and aromas are, the higher the intensity of the wine. Intensity in wine can range from neutral (not particularly intense) to pronounced (high intensity).
Intensity
info
Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.

4.6
Gonzalez-Byass Viña AB Amontillado Seco can be seen as the younger counterpart of the popular Tio Pepe Fino Sherry, but it undergoes aging as an Amontillado. After fermentation, the wine continues aging under the so-called "Flor" and is gradually allowed to oxidize further. This unique process typically imparts complexity and intrigue to Amontillado sherries. Viña AB is not sweet; instead, it features delicate notes of nuts, bitter almonds, a hint of tobacco, and a salty finish.

This 12-year oak-matured superior amontillado sherry boasts a very dry profile with gentle fruity, oak, and raisin notes. It is a high-quality, fresh, smooth, and full-bodied sherry. Produced through a unique process blending biological aging under flor yeast with oxidative aging, it acquires a distinct character. The initial 6 years develop pungent dryness, followed by fortification to 17% alcohol, initiating a decade-long oxidative aging. This double process yields complex and intriguing amontillados, noted for their elegant, subtle, amber appearance. Ideal pairings include smoked fish salads, mushrooms, red fruits, mature cheeses, and white meat or fish in oil.
