Dry Sherry – Jerez – Spain
Careful selection of only 2 casks of 8-year-old Fino
The classification of the Fino Palmas collection 2019 has clearly been influenced by the climatological year. We had a mild and dry winter and a fresh summer, and these circumstances have led to Flor showing significant yeast activity in winter and spring, which it managed to maintain throughout the summer. The selected casks for Una and Dos Palmas are clear examples of how far biological aging can be taken, in these two Finos, true examples of the two terroirs of Jerez; the vineyard and the vineyard.
Long biological aging for this sublime Fino. The perfect balance between soil and Flor. Of the 148 casks that make up this Solera, casks 28 and 78 were selected. These were found on the second floor of Gran Bodega Tio Pepe.
Golden color with a hint of amber. This wine shows light legs.
On the palate, the wine is both intense, salty and very flavorful, with a slight creaminess. The finish is impressive, it is round and balanced with notes of iodine, roasted almonds, aldehydes and dried flowers. Round and welcoming aftertaste that clearly marks the origin of the Albariza soil and the greatness of the biological ageing. The purest definition of an old Fino.
It has a complex and very sharp nose, potent Velo de Flor, chalk and hazelnuts with floral aromas, salt and minerality.
This is an ideal fino to enjoy with classic salad dressings, sausages and soft cheeses. Vegetables, white meat or grilled fish will also go perfectly with this wine, always served chilled and chilled in the best long and thin wine glass. Suitable for vegans
