Valdespino Fino Inocente Sherry
100% Palomino. In a region devoted to tradition, there is no more traditional bodega than Sherry’s most historic house, Valdespino. Macharnudo, Jerez's greatest vineyard, makes Valdespino the envy of every other sherry producer, and it is the source of most of its best wines, including their Fino Inocente. The wine’s intensity defies description. While other Finos are fermented in tank, Inocente—like the great Finos of the past—is fermented in barrel with indigenous yeast. Then bottled aged for ten years, triple that of most other Finos, before it is released. Ocean breeze, hay, salted almonds, green apples, and grapefruit come together to make one of the most complex Sherries out there. Do not miss.
