Product information

Description

From the seaside vineyards of Sanlucar, again eight to ten years old on average from a Solera composed of around 10 stages. Lighter aromatically than the Fino, more floral and less marked by the flor, almond and candied peel, elegant and briney. In the mouth dazzling freshness and bite, there is a little bread dough softness in there, but it is a dry, concentrated style, a note verjus, with a tang of bittersweet orange peel and very good length. 91/100 - Tom Cannavan, Wine Pages.com, June '18

Straw gold. Fragrant nose – dry wild meadow grasses, dried lemon peel, acacia blossom. Wonderful grapefruit-pith bitterness and macadamia oil. Herbal and wild and salty and citrus. It reminds me of Moroccan preserved lemons with their salty, tangy, citric-oily intensity. Begging for green olives, straight-off-the-griddle flatbreads and fresh humus. 17/20 - Tamlyn Curran, Jancis Robinson.com, May '18

100% Palomino Fino grown on albariza soil in Pago del Hornillo, Sanlucar de Barrameda and aged in a criadera of 8 barrels. Only small amounts are ever bottled at one time to preserve the essential “velo de flor” and has an average age of 8 to 9 years when bottled.

Bodegas Juan Piñero began with the purchase of a century-old winery in the low-lying parts of this famous town. Considerable investment was needed to further enhance the bodegas’ potential; extensive remodelling of the buildings and courtyard has created the ideal atmosphere for developing manzanilla. Top quality oak barrels were bought followed by fine sherry must from the region’s finest vineyards.  Further expansion in 2000 and 2007 (when they acquired  another century-old bodega located on Calle San Francisco Javier in the historic centre of Jerez de la Frontera.
