Fino en rama Cruz Vieja – May 2016

Second time around for this meaty fino – and I say meaty because fresh opened it really has a solidity about it. 

This saca is from the end of May this year – not sure when that other bottle was from – and I picked it up from the maker himself at Casa del Jerez this summer. 

A dark colour, not a big nose but yeasty (at the bready end) and some bitter citrus, then a powerful mouthful – again on the yeasty, vegetable side, with that citrus bitterness. Salinity that takes over at the end, tingles the tongue and makes your mouth water.

Grapefruit, yeast and minerals: a real mouthful of flavours here.
