"Sherry to try before you die" Sarah Jane Evans MW


One of the most exceptional of the small independent sherry houses, Fernando de Castilla was revitalised in 1999 by Jan Pettersen, a Norwegian gone native with a passion for top quality sherry. In just a decade since then, Fernando de Castillo has earned a very high profile, and established itself as one of the outstanding producers in Jerez, consistently producing excellent sherry and winning a string of awards including a Decanter International Trophy in 2009 for its Amontillado, and in 2010 for its Antique Pala Cortado. This Antique Fino is golden in colour with a very developed nose characterised by deep aromas. This is a dry sherry that has undergone a longer ageing process that normal making it fuller and more complex.

 

"Reassuringly dry with lovely crisp bite and a savoury, wood smoke character. Green walnuts, kumquats, green olives and lemon curd with a hint of mint, lip-smacking mineral freshness and a peaty, umami finish." 5* Decanter World Wine Awards 2012

    This is ideal for those who like fino sherry with a bit more development and complexity (a bit like Gonzalo Byaz deligado fino). Great length of flavour. A really nice aperitif.
