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. This is a particularly elegant sherry with lifted aromas of aged flor and raisin, opening onto a palate of harmony, spice and layered balance. It is a truly haunting and bewitching wine that serves as a perfect companion to cured hard cheeses such as Manchego or Parmesan, or try with pâté and apricot chutney. For something sweeter, also try with gingerbread.

 

"Orange, spice, citrus and salt on the nose. Pungent, spicy oak with attractively bold flavours and a long peanut finish. Really beautiful stuff. 17.17pts/20" - Decanter, December 2011
