Fernando de Castilla, Classic Fino

22.95

Pale in colour with just a hint of straw yellow at the rim. Powerful and acute on the nose, yet aromatic, intriguing and inviting.
Sensuously textured rather than brittle, absolutely bone dry, aristocratic and very poised. Its profile is perfectly seamless right until the finish where fascinating savoury, nutty, ripples conjure some charming, subtle and elusive final flavours. Fino Sherry, it is beyond dispute, is absolutely the most incredible and undervalued alcoholic drink there is.

About This Wine...

“From a small bodega revitalised by Norwegian Sherry nuy Jan Pettersen, this is super smooth and intensly flavoured” Mary Dowey, The Gloss Magazine April 2017

The House

One of the most exceptional of the small, independent sherry houses, Fernando de Castilla was revitalised in 1999 by Jan Pettersen, a Norwegian gone native with a passion for top quality sherry with 15 years experience at Osborne. After taking over the cellars of the Sherry shipper Jose Bustamante, located next door to the main facilities of Fernando de Castilla, Jan quickly established Fernando de Castilla as masters of the production and ageing of fine, unblended, untreated Sherries. The bodega’s reputation is based on the excellence of the Antique range of intensely pure and complex single solera Sherries whose award winning packaging makes them even more impressive. The Antique Palo Cortado was awarded trophies for ‘Best of Show’ and ‘Best Dry Sherry’ at the 2009 New Wave Spanish Wine Awards, whilst the Antique Amontillado scooped the trophy for ‘Dry Sherry over £10’ and the 2009 Decanter World Wine Awards.
