Mejor esta vez aunque todavía lejos de lo wue un aficionado equilibrado calificaría como un fino extraordinario. Aromático hasta la médula. En boca saladito pero muy corto. De bueno a muy bueno acompañando a unas alcachofas coronadas con beicon y foie.
The perfect aperitif. Starts off with preserved lemons and Marcona almonds and then goes into a sort of saline/chicken broth savoury phase before finishing with herbs, seashells, and hazelnuts. Long beautiful finish with a lovely round, but refreshing, mouthfeel. Summer in a glass.
This wine has a lot to offer as an aperitif on its own, with tapas, or with a main course. I found it paired well with chicken as well as fish. It is more on the full-flavoured side for a fino. All the classic nuttiness along with freshness on the palate and a pleasant finish. A very good fino.

(NV Valdespino Fino 'Inocente') A typically pale hue. Full and aromatic, with aromatic herbs and rock salt notes on the nose. Very nicely balanced palate, with a seamless integration of flavour, weight and grip. Nice herby-woody character, with a firm, clean finish. Lovely aperitif.
