- Valdespino stakes a claim as the oldest Sherry bodega, and it is hard to argue with six centuries of Sherry production as evidence. The family have been involved in making Sherry for around 700 years; exactly when they started up is not clear, the information lost in the mists of time. The family business is located in Jerez, in some of the city's oldest and most attractive buildings. Unsurprisingly practices here are traditional, most notable is the fermentation, which takes place in cask for the vast majority of the harvest. In addition the business encompasses the bodega Manuel de Argüeso in Sanlúcar de Barrameda which is the source of the firm's Manzanilla.
A beautiful, dark walnut-brown hue. An immediately captivating nose, with nut and toffee aromas and the enticing sweetness of a PX dosage. Sweet toffee, and a welcome acidity on entry, which maintains a very fresh presence on the midpalate. Here the flavour opens up to reveal and array of toffee, nuts, autumn leaves and walnut.
