- 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 typically pale hue. Full and aromatic, with aromatic herbs and rock salt notes on the nose. Very nicely balanced palate, with a seamless integration of flavour, weight and grip. Nice herby-woody character, with a firm, clean finish. Lovely aperitif.
- 'A textbook Fino. A single vineyard wine, this is the last remaining Fino to be fermented in oak butts. It is aged for some ten years yet carries its age very lightly. This is superbly complex - think salted Marcona almonds and tangy green olives, with a thrillingly dry character. 93 Points' - Sarah Jane Evans MW, Decanter, 2.11.16

A very cold glass of fino sherry, served alongside a plate of salted almonds and jamon iberico is one of life's great pleasures!
