Fucking amazing. That salty, savory character from aging under flor, but not fortified. Maintains some ripe and dried fruit character, finishes with some marcona notes. Basically ideal

Delicious. Saline, nuts, mintiness. Bright white fruit and a hint of chalk.

Fresh and salty, perfect with clams in black bean sauce at Sun Wah.

Unfortified flor-aged 100% Palomino by Dirk Niepoort & Equipo Navazos, sourced from the historic Macharnudo vineyard in Jerez. Fermented in old, 600-liter oak casks with indigenous yeasts and aged for 12 months under flor. Oxidative nose with hints hay and pineapple. Light, mineral, precise and bone dry on the mouth, with nice saltiness and a long, somewhat bitter finish.

FUNKY! You can taste the sherry twist and heritage in that one. Always great to discover unconventional wines.

Absolutely sublime for a white wine. Full flavor but crisp.

Interesting, unfortified Palimino Fino. A note of nail polish on the nose though. Yuck.

Light good; musty yeast, pear, nut, honeysuckle nose. Light body, v dry, saline, good acid. Long fino-like finish.
