Absolutely fascinating. Sweet smoke and oxidative aromas dominate the nose - butterscotch and chestnuts. On the palate the acidity rushes through with ferocity. Lemon peel and brine find a more caramel like finish. Beautiful and bizarre - and as always a pleasure to enjoy a birth vintage wine :) #sommcon

Had no idea what to expect going into this. Delicate and oxidized. Bright acidity and intense minerality with lemon peel and a long, almost nutty finish, like Fino Sherry. Cork was slightly soaked through. One of a kind but not for everyone.

It was a sherry, but not a sherry. It was sherry lite. It wasn’t sherry. Even though my mind says it was very close. I’d be curious to taste vintages with less than 5 years age.

I was very excited to try this #Arinto having tried the ‘95 on a few occasions. I must say I prefer the ‘95, though the ‘91 is still interesting.

Beautiful bouquet and golden honey color. Uninteresting on the finish. Not fruit forward, but acid seems balanced. Next, I want to try the 1993, my birth year vintage!
