Fino sherry is made from Palomino fino grapes, which develop a layer of white yeast, the ‘flor’, in the cool damp air of the Bodegas – only those with a particularly good flor are made into Finos, as this keeps the wine from oxidising; those with less ‘flor’ become Olorosos. It is aged in American oak barrels using the traditional Criadera y Solera system. It is a pale straw colour, fresh and aromatic, dry and crisp on the palate with notes of olive and apple, yet rich and with a full soft finish.
Serve the Fino well chilled as an aperitif or with a starter, seafood, oysters and white fish. Keep in the refrigerator and drink within a few days for optimal freshness.
