NV Bodegas Fernando de Castilla Fino Sherry
Grapes are sourced from Fernando de Castilla's partners vineyards in the Jerez district. The soil type is Albariza.
Picking takes place in early September. The wine is made from the first pressing of grapes, this gives a light fresh style. Fermentation takes place at relatively high temperatures to reduce fruit flavour. This makes a very neutral wine which is perfect for the production of sherry. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation.
In the February after harvest the wine is fortified with grape brandy up to 15% abv. Once at this stage the wine is then added to the youngest Criadera in the Solera. The wine then begins its ageing process under flor. Only 20% of finished wine can be removed from the Solera in one year.
The average age of the Fino solera is 4-4.5 years old.
Tasting Note: Pale in hue, exhibiting a hint of straw yellow at the rim, this Fino Sherry greets the nose with a powerful yet aromatic bouquet. Its texture is supple, not brittle, and the taste decidedly dry, distinguished and balanced. On the finish, captivating savoury and nutty notes emerge, evoking charming, subtle, and elusive flavours.
