Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
Nutty aromas with notes of orange peel and spice.
A dry, rich flavour with notes of dried fruit and a concentrated finish.
This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 2 years

"Do check out Tesco's excellent own-label Finest sherries, made by the Barbadillo bodega. This is distinctly hazelnutty and nearly dry."
Fiona Beckett - The Guardian Weekend 13/10/2012
"And don't forget amontillado Sherry. The drinks cupboard staple of many a granny back in the 1960's - albeit the anglicised medium-dry version - is still ridiculously good value. I like Tesco's seductively nutty Finest* Dry Amontillado. Delicious with cheddar."
Barbadillo is a 100% Spanish family owned business based in Sanlucar de Barrameda since 1821, that effortlessly brings together tradition and modernity. Barbadillo owns 500 hectares of vineyards spread over two estates, Gibalbín and Santa Lucía, both of which are located in the area known as Jerez Superior. The former has an extensive winemaking plant fully equipped with state-of-the-art technology and Barbadillo’s numerous wine cellars are strategically distributed over the outstanding area of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, surrounding the medieval castle of Santiago.
The Jerez Superior are the celebrated lands of albariza, a porous, chalky soil characterised by its pale colour that is particularly well suited to the cultivation of vines grown for the production of quality wines. The climate is mild with more than 3,000 hours of sun softened by the cooling influence of the Atlantic. These factors, together with a long winemaking tradition, allow for excellent ripening of the Palomino grapes and ensure a high degree of beaumé (level of sweetness) and moderate acidity.

I purchased in store for Christmas. Very dissappointing, appearance was rather cloudly, perhaps I should have returned it, taste was sharp, harsh, nutty - I failed to pick up any orange or spice flavours. So caution, not recommended.

The sherry was poor compared to Tesco's 1 litre Amontillado, which I normally buy but was out of stock. I love Tesco's 1 liter Amontillado sherry and the Wine Society's Amontillado, but this was akin to a cross between Dry and Amontillado.
