Characteristics of Fernando de Castilla Classic Amontillado
Fernando de Castilla Classic Amontillado is a fortified wine produced by the Rey Fernando de Castilla winery in the D.O. Jerez.
The winery is located in the centre of Jerez de la Frontera (Cádiz). It is a vintage winery and in the last few years, it has started producing young fortified wines – the Classic range – and old wines from the winery’s very old vintages - the Antique range.
Fernando de Castilla Classic Amontillado is made with the Palomino grape. The must is extracted at 15ºC for a biological ageing under a cap of ‘flor’ yeast, then it enters the criaderas and soleras system for four years. It is extracted again at 18ºC to remove the cap of ‘flor’ yeast and begins the oxidative ageing process that will last another 4 years.

Jerez is home to an exceptional culture in winemaking and viticulture, producing an incredible variety of wines. Sherry and the DO. Jerez region are unlike any other wine or region in Spain and symbolise a centuries-old culture and a true art form of ecological tradition. Even today it is fair to say that these wines have not found their equivalent in the world, and are therefore a real asset to the Spanish word of wine.
