2021/4 with jamon, potato and truffle tortilla, paella, etc. This bottle was on the oxidative side of amontillado- lots of dried stone fruits, cream, and nuts - and very delicious. — 2 days ago

Bodegas San Francisco Javier is the new joint venture in Jerez between Peter "Pingus" Sisseck and the owners of Hacienda Monasterio.
Together they bought an impressive solera with the idea to produce Fino wines, plus eight hectares of vines in Pago Balbaína and a further two in Pago Macharnudo. This is the very first bottling, and after the rave reviews from wine critics, we can expect this joint venture to continue, promising two different wines in the future.

"This is a powerful and fresh Fino, pungent and persistent, long, amazingly elegant, vibrant and alive. I was floored by the complexity and elegance of this wine."
93+ points for the technical quality of the wine, but the style (Sherry) is not my cup of tea. Anyone that has interest in my second bottle? 😂 — 2 months ago
Приятный цвет, аромат древесины, причём, как будто, не дубовой, а вишнёвой или сливовой, фруктовой и смолистой. Выраженная кислотность уравновешивает танинность. Вкус вишнёво-сливовый, Вкуснее, когда немного подышит. — a month ago

The colour of Coke, lovely molasses and Christmas pudding on nose. So thick, sweet and long with just about enough acidity. Amazing value in small quantities. — 2 months ago
