Half bottle of Inocente Fino, Valdespino

Sherry from Spain
5.000000000 star rating 3 Reviews
This is classic Fino with an intense nutty aroma and notes of freshly baked bread and apples. With crisp, dry, full flavour that lingers on the palate this would be an excellent foil to most tapas dishes, seared tuna or simply a bowl of green olives. Winner of the IWC Fino Trophy 2021. This is a single vineyard Fino from the renowned Macharnudo vineyard (or pago). Fermentation is traditional, still taking place in 600 litre American oak barrels, and there are 10 criadera stages to the Inocente solera, rather than the usual 3 or 4. This gives the wine incredible complexity and finesse, while the higher altitude site ensures that the wine retains an appetising freshness.

This stunning, dry, complex, umami-rich, single-vineyard (Macharnudo) fino comes from wines fermented in 600L American oak barrels and is aged for around 10 years. The flavours are an Aladdin’s cave of never-ending delights; sea salt, green apples, toasty yeast and almonds and herbs bouncing off each other. It has terrific finesse, line, length and balance. Every inch of it feels classic. A beautiful dry vinous partner for food, it effortlessly passes the second glass test! Sip it with Marcona almonds, fish and chips, garlicky Pan con Tomate, tortilla, young Manchego, Mojama and Ibérico ham. Swap dry vermouth for this fino in your next Martini! Like most white wines, aim to drink an opened bottle within two to three days.

Cracking value here for an outstanding 100% palomino, single-vineyard fino sherry rarity from the calcium-carbonate-rich, ‘albariza’ white soils of the celebrated Macharnudo vineyard. Light bodied with low acidity, fino sherries have been ‘biologically’ aged in partially filled casks under a film of flor yeast which shields the wine from oxidation, whilst reducing glycerol levels (and thus body). This one’s super-refined, tangy, crisp, texturally delicate but also complex, with an average age of 10 years: think almonds, moss, sea salt, green apples and toasty yeast. A ludicrously low price tag for the wine world’s best-kept secret. Relish as soon as possible. One for white asparagus, griddled/steamed green asparagus with aioli/ hollandaise or grilled asparagus with romesco sauce/poached eggs. Of course, it’s also dreamy with a plate of ambrosial jamón ibérico! An open bottle should be drunk within two to three days. Gently chill and serve at 8°- 9°C (I recommend taking the bottle out of the fridge about ten minutes before serving).
