Palomino Fino


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. — 13 days ago

This was a bit polarising. My wife really did not enjoy it and there were claims it tasted too much like banana 😂. There definately was a ripe fruit note but also stoney minerality and wood. Also a bit of sherry. Was something a bit different and would drink again. — 14 days ago

@Andrew McIntyre recently picked up a bottle at the recommendation of a friend.
That sherry note is making me nervous. Was the alcohol intrusive ?

Haha dont worry too much. It was more a subtle hint and not the alcohol level. Others loved this wine and you can see the comparison to a white burgundy. Still, an unconventional wine. Will look out for your future review!

Wild stuff but excellent. Nose smells a bit naturally. Lemon oil, but that natural skin contact thing. But very clean. Palate is grippy and concentrated. Sappy and pure. Great balance and purity. It’s an excellent example of what a natural wine should be but rarely is. Super clean and long. Legit structure. Complex and staggering levels of minerality. This can and will age. Long echoing finish. Really stellar. Wish more natty wine tasted like this. Then again Leclapart is a genius. — 9 days ago

Hate to quibble, but the lower ratings on this make no sense to me. This is beautiful, like a lightly sherried Chablis, and the best Palomino I’ve had. — 6 days ago
