Fernando de Castilla

From an 8 year-old Solera system. Bottled unfiltered; double fortification is used instead of filtration -- the traditional method. An excellent choice with paella, grilled seafood, nuts and hard cheeses. 

Winemaker's Notes:

Golden color, very developed aromas and flavors due to longer than usual ageing in oak.

"The NV Antique Fino is eight years of average age when bottled; it’s fragrant and perfumed, feminine and subtle, with dry flowers and a rare balance between old and young. The palate shows a much more serious wine, pungent, intense, saline, sharp and at the same time delicate, complex and long, most probably because it’s fortified to 17% at the time of bottling, something that was common in the past, but that almost nobody does anymore. A most unusual old-style Fino. Bravo! 4,000 bottles produced yearly. Drink 2013-2018. "
