Vibrant amber with olive-green hue
An ethereal high note with creamed honey, vanillin and bourbon-barrel complexities
A striking balance of mixed peel, roasted nuts, wood smoke, honeysuckle and vibrant acidity
The Paramount DP898 Aged Flor Apera is crafted using the Palomino variety, renowned for its neutral flavour profile and suitability to dryer Apera (previously known in Australia as Sherry) styles. The DP898 gains its complexity through the influence of a layer of yeast (flor), as well through extended barrel maturation. This layer of flor however is later removed, prompting oxidative maturation and the development of subtle nutty and wood aged characters. This style would have traditionally been referred to in Australia as Amontillado Sherry.
