La Panesa Fino Especial Jerez-Xérès-Sherry Palomino Fino

A very unusual Fino, aged in the solera system for an average of 15 years (much longer than most Finos, closer to an Amontillado). Deep golden color. Elegant nose with yeasty and nutty aromas. Intense on the palate. Almonds, bitter notes. Long finish — a month ago

Old Vines Patagonia Sémillon 2020

Delectable Wine
9.5

The 2020 Semillón Old Vines From Patagonia comes from Alle and Ingeniero Huergo and was fermented and aged in foudres for eight months. Golden in the glass. The nose is seductively clear: a drop of honey, beeswax, and dry damson mingle with sweet spice notes from the aging process. In the mouth it’s dry but broad, with a slow flow and firm acidity hiding behind a velvety texture that constricts toward the end, getting ever more light on its feet. The extremely languorous finish is the flavor of beeswax once the honey has been removed. (Joaquín Hidalgo, Vinous, June 2021) — a month ago

White Bones Adrianna Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

Delectable Wine
9.6

The 2019 Chardonnay White Bones Adrianna Vineyard is from the eponymous vineyard in Tupungato and was aged for up to 16 months in used French barrels. Pale yellow with golden flecks. The intense aromatic profile is led by herbs such as basil and a crystal-clear lavender whiff, alongside cedar, vanilla and a backdrop of green apple. Broad and creamy on the palate but with a terse texture and superb freshness, this has an unctuous feel. White fruit aromas appear at the back of the mouth. Ending with a lovely, herbal finish, this is a wine inspired by Chablis but possessing a wild purity all its own. (Joaquín Hidalgo, Vinous, June 2021)

Fino Seco Jerez-Xérès-Sherry Palomino Fino

What I expect of a Fino. Sherry can be downright refreshing. The yellow apple/hay/bread notes on it all mingle gracefully. The texture is silky satin and there is a certain underlying floral nature that keeps all the other flavors from being stale. It’s like unsweet nectar in a springtime garden. If you could combine a back-to-school vibe with a spring break feeling that’s what I’m picking up here. — 3 months ago

Apartado Gran Chardonnay 2018

Delectable Wine
9.4

The 2018 Chardonnay Apartado Gran is made from grapes from Gualtallary and El Cepillo in the Uco Valley and was aged for 12 months in 50% new oak. Golden yellow in the glass. The initially shy nose is dominated by the aging process, offering hazelnuts and yeast before opening up into fine layers of apple and ginger cookie over a bed of butter and oak. Broad and creamy on the palate with mild concentration; vibrant freshness provides a counterpoint. The oak returns during the persistent finish, accompanied by notes of vanilla and yeast.
