Antique Fino, Fernando de Castilla NV- 50 cl

27.50

Rich and long with greater depth and complexity than a standard Fino – Jan Pettersen refers to this as his ‘winter Fino’! Appealing salty tang and a long, citrus finish. Very fresh and pure.

About This Wine...

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.

Reviews and Awards

  • ‘Fabulous…………………a stunningly complex perfumed wine’  Martin Moran, The Sunday Times, 20 July 2014.
  • Awarded 18.5/20 pts by Ernie Whalley   “…..completely different.  Long ageing gives this the feel of a good dry amontillado.  The steely backbone tells you it isn’t.”  Martin Moran  “This has walnuts, dried apricot and more.  Mouth-filling and intense, creamy and tangy.  Fascinating stuff”  Sunday Times 21 Sep 2014.
