Don Zoilo Very Old Dry Sherry 

This wine, bottled in 1977 and brought put tonight by Juancho Asenjo, was in absolutely spectacular condition for all its years in the bottle. 

Just look at that colour – beautiful gold and, while not crystalline, you would never say this first glass was a 40 year old. First up it has a little bit of salty seaweedy reduction on the nose, but on the palate it is is brilliant. It has a soft, buttery texture and is full of flavour. Whereas a 40 year old table wine can whither away, this is still all there: a zingy start, then nice intense almonds and and a smooth, rich and saline finish. 

An oldie but a very goodie. Thanks again Juanjo!
