Sold out
It is five to six years old (so far older than most commercial Fino on the market) and can be thought of as a baby La Bota. It's a younger, racier and more restrained version but nonetheless offers loads of floral, nutty, saline aromatics and a palate bursting with energy, texture, fruit sweetness and those intense briny notes that make these wines so unique. It also has the class and sheer drinkability of a great white wine (which is what it is!) From the men that we consider to be releasing the finest Sherries on the planet (Eduardo Ojeda and Jesús Barquín), this is a crazy bargain.

Note: Because this has already had such a long aging, it is extremely resilient and can be kept in the fridge for weeks and even months after opening. It will evolve, yes, but it won't fall over. As such it is a great pouring option.

"... its origin is exclusively Jerez vineyards: Cartera, Lomopardo and Macharnudo Alto, but each bottling is different, from a selected group of barrels. This has an average age of approximately five years. It has a lot of character with the classical notes of chalk and esparto grass, and the yeasty palate with pleasant bitterness in the finish. A textbook Fino "en rama," as it's bottled unfined and without stabilization." 92 points, Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate
