Bodegas Urium is a family-owned bodega located in the centre of Jerez. The location, geographical orientation and the materials used in its construction all combine to ensure optimum conditions for wine maturation and ageing.
Bodegas Urium is a very old sacristy winery which boasts the full range of Jerez wines. They cherish the traditions, skills, processes and know-how of the wine-makers of Jerez and aspire to producing only the finest quality wines, stylishly and elegantly presented.
Amontillado is the result of the two very different types of ageing processes in Jerez, first biological under the ´velo de flor´ and then oxidative, thus ensuring that it retains both the elegance of a Fino and the roundness of an Oloroso.
A brilliant, amber coloured sherry, it has a delicate, deep bouquet of hazelnut shells, incense, vanilla, aromatic herbs and black tobacco. Gentle on the palate it combines balanced acidity with a lingering dryness of aromatic seasoned wood and dried nuts.
Ideal with vegetables such as asparagus, artichokes or mushrooms, it is also the perfect accompaniment to soups and consomés, white meat or blue fish, and especially tuna. Serve cold between 12° and 14° C.
