Deluxe Dry Sherry Fino Palomino Fino

Enjoying! Feel like it has some oxidation. Odd because it is Fino. Fino shouldn’t be oxidative hmmm. But quite tasty. Nutty salty freshly baked white bread and natural honey. You could take it anywhere and no one will pull you aside to tell you they are worried about you hanging out with it going down the wrong path etc — 6 days ago

Navazos-Niepoort Vino Blanco 2018

Non fortified Palomino from Jerez aged for 8 months in barrel under flor and bottled at 12% abv.
Clean, medium + intense aromas. Opens up with acetaldehyde, fermenting bread dough, and crushed almonds. The fruit entries with lemon juice and yellow fresh apples with a present chalky and sea shell, salty minerality. Fresh acidity, drying chalky texture, flavours of lemon juice, nuts, chalk and bread dough, linear mid palate and a good but not impresscive finish

Emilio Lustau

Almacenista Pata de Gallina Oloroso Palomino Fino

2021/4. Intensely and rich, with lot of raisins, brandied fruit, and walnuts - but also a wonderful balancing acidity to keep things bright. Just a hint of rancio on the finish. — 8 days ago

Asuncion Oloroso Pedro Ximénez

Well now this is different. An oloroso from PX but it is merely off-dry. If I wanted Sherry to replace a piece of rye bread, lightly toasted and spread with apricot jam and sprinkled with walnuts, it would be this. Sadly oloroso in the morning probably isn’t a good idea but why not have breakfast for dinner? Actually I think this would pair very well with French toast with an ample pair of amber maple syrup.
Good for dessert tambien.

San Emilio PX Solera Reserva Sherry Pedro Ximénez 1896

NV | I am not thát fond about PX but this Lustau blew me away. Luscious smell, multi layered with dates and currants, very vibrant and elegant. It might be that the combination with an Italian chocolate cake, raspberries and berries contributed to my high appreciation. Happiness ☺️. Fantastic effort, very balanced — 15 days ago

Almacenista Manuel Cuevas Jurado Manzanilla Pasada de Sanlucar Jerez-Xérès-Sherry 1896

2021/4 as an aperitif. This starts off very briny, pungent and austere, but opens over several days to reveal stony fruit, almonds and custard - the manzanilla base is very much in evidence, but there’s lots of oxidative completely too. — 8 days ago

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. — 4 days ago

Barranco Oscuro

El Pino Rojo Pinot Noir

First Pinot noir from Spain that I taste. Surprisingly good, strong sour cherry taste and lots of character. The color is surprising as well - you would expect purple shades but it’s actually a bit orange-y — a month ago
