Inocente Macharnudo Vineyard Fino Palomino Fino

A trip down memory lane! This used to be my go-to as a frugal engineering student in Melbourne. It delivered such great bang for the buck, and it still does. Where else can you find an old-school, long-aged wine from a single vineyard for around $20-30? This was briny, yeasty, toasty, nutty, and herbal, with a distinctly salty curry-leaf finish that just keeps growing even after the wine's gone down the throat. Wow! Definitely one of the best QPR in the market in my opinion. — 8 days ago

Promesa Jerez Moscatel

Memorable. Mincemeat, roasted winter fruits. So many wines of this type are simple and cloying. This ain’t that. #valdespino #moscatel #jerez — 4 years ago

Emilio Lustau

Palo Cortado Península Jerez-Xérès-Sherry Seco Dry Palomino Fino

Years ago went to a Valdespino tasting, & learned that Lustau made their sherries from land not owned by them, which was a dis. I gotta say though this Palo Cortado is a thing of beauty, especially for under 23$. — 2 years ago

La Bota de Fino No. 35 Sherry

Since reaching my third decade on this planet, I feel it’s only right to graduate to Sherry. How content I am to be introduced to this smooth talking goat from Valdespino - one of Spain’s oldest Sherry producers. Gold, cloudy and unfiltered. Hold up to the light to discover flecks of pink rose and lime around the edge. A wise nose possessing orange peel, menthol, vanilla essence and grandmas underwear drawer. A spectacular drop, that summons you to drink and think more slowly. I guess that’s why the old birds love it. Pour yourself a Sherry and slow down my friends. — 3 years ago

Sherry Pedro Ximénez

Intense nose of saltana, raisins, molasses, sardine oil and soy. Insanely luscious with well intergrated spirit. Lacks some complexity and feels like it could've done with further ageing — 6 years ago
