5.12.17 Williams & Humbert Launch New Vintage Fino
A new Fino de Añada 2010 has been added to the firm’s Colección de Añadas and is now on the market. It joins the previous Fino releases of 2006, 2007 and 2009, all bottled en rama and aged statically, not in the more usual criaderas and soleras system. This means that the wine has a precise age (seven years) and demonstrates the quality of its vintage year, which in this case was slightly cooler than average. It was made from selected first pressings from the firm’s vineyards in the pagos Añina and Carrascal, fermented at a fairly low temperature, fortified to 15.5° and aged in old butts. Only 1,000 x 50cl bottles have been released in a saca which took place in October 2017.
