Street Wines View:

75cl Bottle.

Leonor by Antonio Flores is described as the wild child of Jerez. Due to its mysterious ageing process it could be described as similar to an
Amontillado on the nose and similar to an Oloroso on the palate. Leonor shows a light mahogany colour with golden tones and slightly orange rim. On the nose intense and complex with typical Amontillado notes such as hazelnuts perfectly balanced with other aromas such as bitter orange and mature oak. On the palate powerful and intense with toasted notes yet smooth and silky.


Leonor should be served between 10 and 12 ºC in a small white wine
glass. Due to its power and structure this Palo Cortado is perfect with hard
cheese, salty caramel, strong meats such as venison and dry aged beef.

A sublime enigma of a dry Sherry with sweet suggestions, making it perfect as a festive mid-morning tipple with a mince pie or cherry fruitcake, as an aperitif with a plate of ham and cheese, or by the evening fireside alongside the freshly cracked walnuts. At this price, just buy it!
