Bodegas Tradicion, Fino Tradicion Sherry, Andalucía, Spain
Tasting Note: A rare, 8-year-old-aged Fino Sherry Viejo that is a special treat because you rarely find Fino this old.
Medium-intensity gold in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of bread dough and toasted bread.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied Fino Sherry has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose along with toasted walnut and almond skin.
A robust Fino with development and depth of flavor.
The midpalate is complex with a wonderfully-golden color ultimately completing with a medium-plus finish.
The best Fino Sherry I’ve ever had.
Bottle Note: Tradicion CZ is the unique Jerez bodega to only bottle consistently genre-defining very fully aged wines capable of pleasurably filling the senses. Tradicion CZ, unique quality, limited production.
