Fernando de Castilla, Antique Fino Sherry, Andalucía, Spain
Tasting Note: A 9-year-old, barrel-aged Fino Sherry with stamina.
Medium-intensity amber in color, this wine has a medium-plus-intensity nose of slightly-baked bread dough, caramel, well-done toast and butter with pleasing rancio elements.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied Fino Sherry has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a long finish.
Caramel notes percolate through the length of the taste.
