Xeco Fino Sherry - 50cl - 15% ABV
Grown in the sunny and dry vineyards of Jerez. The soil is Albarizo. The Palomino grape produces a fairly dry & neutral base wine, which is perfect for the fortification to 15% abv needed to produce a Fino style of sherry.
Once fortified to 15% abv the wine is aged in 500 litre American Oak barrels for three years. A layer of yeast 'flor' remains on the surface facilitating biological ageing & encouraging the delicate aromas and complexity that can be found in this wine.
A sharp, delicate bouquet, slight reminiscent of sweet nuts, fresh dough and wild herbs. Light, dry and delicate on the palate but with mouthfeel and expression. The taste lingers with intensity and satisfaction, dry but with subtle almond notes on the finish.
