Fernando de castilla Fino Sherry


Sherry from Jerez, Spain

Winemaker Notes:
Antique Fino is a wine of four criaderas that originate from a selection of barrels from the Classic Fino solera that were set aside and left untouched for five years. In contrast to highly filtered, fairly young modern Finos that have been fortified only once, this wine boasts a formidable average of 9 years age at bottling, sees minimal filtration and a second fortification (the old fashioned way).
Critical Acclaim:
93 Points – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The NV Antique Fino is eight years of average age when bottled; it’s fragrant and perfumed, feminine and subtle, with dry flowers and a rare balance between old and young. The palate shows a much more serious wine, pungent, intense, saline, sharp and at the same time delicate, complex and long, most probably because it’s fortified to 17% at the time of bottling, something that was common in the past, but that almost nobody does anymore. A most unusual old-style Fino. Bravo! 4,000 bottles produced yearly.
