From Jerez and the Sherry grape palomino fino; straw yellow heavy on the swirl with a bunch of rod-like filamentous residue that sinks to the bortom of the glass; marsipan, ripe tangerines and boquets of wildflowers dominate the nose; taste is austere, low-medium acids, and clearly sherry-like, the structure reminds me of a north Rhône viognier. Well made and fresh and excellent with Beemster! — 22 days ago
Seashore and shells on the nose, salt.￼ some caramel. On the palate, wide dispersion of nuts, iodine, very dry. Mouth filling, sensory engulfing. With air and time, chocolate and citrus come out.

N: Still like visiting an old boat graveyard. As we move further from the saca date, June/‘16, the nose is more muted. Almost meaty, With those great notes￼ of flor wafting through. Caramel, but less flashy, nuts, almonds, hazelnuts.
P:Still broad, saline and buttery, brown butter at times, oranges, spicy notes, dry brown sugar. Amazing acidity.
On a 90° day al fresco in Philly, very refreshing. I still marvel.

Acetone, toffee, dank earth, orange rind,
That indefinable barrel stank,
The palates almost honeyed, like dried honeycomb in a desert, yellow apples,
Sharp overtones. Mouth filling. — 5 months ago

🍇Equipo Navazos, one of the leading stars in the rebirth of handcraft Sherry. The bota de Fino 91 is stunning with a concentration that is rarely seen in the fino category. Aged for an average 10 years gives it a sensation that the flor has started to fade quite a bit as the wine is almost starting to flirt with an amontillado in its characters. Serve it at 10 degrees and let it rise to 12-14 degrees while you enjoy this piece of art.
👃Pronounced intense, dense and very complex aromas, remarkably aromatic and round edged for being classified as a fino. Bruised apples, orange zest, sourdough, green olives, and Brazil nuts with a salty, iodine and seaweed character on the lead guitar.
Bone dry palate with pronounced flavour intensity. The salty mineral backbone brings freshness and tension through the dense mid palate through a long expansive and chalky finish.
