Tasting Notes

Elegante Fino is a young Fino bright pale golden in colour. On the palate crisp and dry with a floral pear character and subtle clean taste.

Serve well chilled in a small wine glass in order to appreciate the full bouquet of aromas. Ideal with nuts, tapas, shellfish and soup. Elegante Fino should be served chilled and consumed as soon as possible so as to enjoy at its best.

Vineyard Information

The Palomino grapes destined for Elegante Fino come from the second press from pneumatic Wilmes presses. Following fermentation to between 11% and 12% alcohol the wine is fortified to 15.5% alcohol and then enters the Elegante Fino solera. Due to the 15.5% alcohol and the unique temperature and humdity in the Jerez cellars a layer of yeast known as the 'flor' will form on the surface of the wine. In order for this flor to form properly an empty space of 100 litres is left in the cask. This flor is the most important influence on the Fino wine as it protects it from the oxygen and gives it it's unique aroma and character. The wine remains for a minimum of 3 years following the traditional Solera system under the flor.
