Classic Fino 15%, Rey Fernando de Castilla

Pale to mid strawy gold, legs.
Dry, quite serious, saline flor elements with very slight background traces of autolysis and oxidation, fruity background note of Palomino, quite big.
Serious, full, dry, complex, certainly older than the usual 4 or 5 years, some bitterness from the flor and quite intense with hints of straw and bitter almond, very long.
Fine quality. It is  about 4 1/2 years old and comes from a 3 criadera solera. Some of the wine is bottled as Classic Fino while the rest of it goes to feed the Antique Fino solera.

£ 10.00 from Woodwinters, Edinburgh
