Jerez DO Fino "Antique", Bodegas Rey Fernando de Castilla NV 500ml

Fernando de Castilla's Antique Fino is unique as it is aged for an extended period of 8-9 years (more than twice as long as typical Finos) in a tiny single-solera, instead of being a blend of many soleras like almost all Finos. It is bottled "en rama", with a very light paper filtration to retain the direct-from-the-barrel flavors. Thus, it is expressive and possesses a particular character. Light amber colored, with rich, nutty, mature flavors that are impossible not to like.

"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. Drink 2013-2018." 93/100 Luis Gutierrez, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
