Again, a richer, deeper style of Fino than most commercial brands. Mid-gold. Briny hints on the nose, but dominated by mature beeswax, dried apple, dried peels, olive, vanilla & savoury wood notes, plus toasted almond. Soft, rounded palate but with savoury, briny, olive notes – particularly on the medium-to-long finish. Well-balanced alcohol (warm but unobtrusive) – soft & smooth. Quite full-bodied. Slightly earthy touch over woody, chalky notes. Dried fruit. ‘Cheese’ savoury touches – good with mature hard cheese, perhaps?
