Equipo Navazos NV Jerez La Bota de Fino No. 45 750ml

From the Equipo Navazos website: A change in legislation precluded the traditional name given by producers and connoisseurs to this type of wine: Fino Amontillado. We are therefore forced to use this periphrasis and explain that this is a fino on its way toward becoming an Amontillado… The wine is sourced from the oldest fino solera at Pérez Barquero's Bodega Los Amigos: a total of 63 butts arranged "en tercera" and of which this time we have selected about one half. We were after a different and peculiar profile, and so we opted for those butts that displayed more incipient amontillado character--while retaining their nature as fino, as shown by the alcoholic content of the wine, which is only slightly above  15% alc. Telltale notes of early stages of amontillamiento, as well as the concentration of aromas and flavors, evidence its notable age—estimated above 20 years. But there is no question this is still a fino, aged under a fragile layer of flor that time has darkened, weakened, and partly torn into patches.

Gonzalez Byass NV Jerez Dos Palmas Fino 500ml

Dos Palmas is a selection of two casks with still-active flor from an old fino solera of 150 casks averaging 8 years of age. Incredibly memorable for its abundant bouquet of dried apple and golden raisin with silky notes of almond oil and demure florals that continue on to enrich the refined yet electric palate of soft citrus peel, aloe, green almond, and yellow currants. A rare and wonderful pleasure with roasted fish or game with complex combinations of herbs and spices. Ariana Rolich

Gonzalez Byass NV Jerez Fino Tio Pepe En Rama

This is the 2018 release of what is perennially one of my favorite sherries, Gonzales Byass's Tio Pepe En Rama. "En Rama" translates to "from the cask", and this is one of the purest expressions of fino sherry, bottled without fining or filtration in the springtime, when the influence of flor (the veil of yeast that protects the wine from oxidization and imparts a very particular flavor) is at its strongest.The 2018 displays beautiful aromas of green apple, lemon peel, white blossom, almonds, that yeasty flor character, a touch of smoke and a briney, olive note. The palate is vibrant and lovely, marrying all the complexity of the nose with a great minerality and salinity. Such a complex and food-friendly wine! One of my favorite pairings with fino sherry is grilled fish, but this would also be lovely with seared scallops, calamari, or monkfish liver. Oskar Kostecki

Grant, Bodegas NV El Puerto de Santa Maria Amontillado La Garrocha 375ml

I visited Bodegas Grant this past March, and I was struck with the accessibility of the sherries here. This bodega is located in the center of town in El Puerto de Santa Maria. Attached to the bodega is a fabulous bar to quaff these delicious sherries. The Amontillado is soft, floral, and gently spicy. The aging process is not especially lengthy with this wine; which makes it somewhat fruitier and appealing. This is a sherry to drink! — cb

Valdespino NV Jerez Fino Inocente 375ml

Valdespino’s Incocente is perhaps the world’s greatest value in Fino. The grapes are sourced from a single vineyard consisting of Jerez’s classic chalky soils. Unlike most Fino Sherry, which is typically only about 4 yeas old, because of the number of Criaderas in the Inocente Solera, the wine in this bottle is roughly ten years old. This, and the fact that the wine is femented by the ambient yeasts in casks, adds to the signature weight and richness of Inocente. This Fino is truly a study in flor, and has long, rich, yeasty flavors, and vibrant citrusy acidity.  JR
