    Smooth richness cf other fonts. Feel more refined.

    March 20, 2020 - Deep amber; almonds, peanuts, olive brine, crème brule, merigolds; dry, nutty, olive, earthy, slightly saline, light body, good acidity, excellent balance, lingering finish.
    Fragrant nutty, briney aromas and flavours elegantly balanced with 15% alcohol. Lingering salinity on the finish. Delicious, will buy again.

    October 15, 2017 - As previous note. Very interesting and enjoyable wine. A sample left in the fridge for a few days was still very good.
    Excellent value.

    June 1, 2017 - Grandisimo vino de Romate, de lo mejor de la casa.

    Mantequilla tostada, nata agria, avellanas y un deje de mar, el barco atracando en el puerto. Se nota la vejez en la nariz, muy bien llevada, con equilibrio y pureza. La boca habla de lo mismo, seco y vertical, pero educado al mismo tiempo. Sabroso y complejo.

    May 30, 2017 - La Sorprendente Aparición de la Mantequilla Agria (Barra Territorio Era - Madrid): Nose is queen here. Complexity to the limit with a rancid aromas which transports me to a decadent Indian atmosphere, where salinity invades everything. Superb. Unfortunately on the palate this fino hadn't the same high level: short aftertaste, no length at all, a bit muted to my taste. Faith in Sánchez Romate restored.

    La nariz es la reina aquí. Complejidad al límite con unos aromas rancios que me transportan a una decadente atmósfera india, donde la salinidad invade todo. Magnífico. Por desgracia en el paladar este fino no tenía el mismo alto nivel: postgusto corto, sin longitud en absoluto, un poco apagado para mi gusto.

    February 5, 2017 - Deep gold colour, almost brown. Attractive, mature nose. Complex, deep, nutty palate. Dry, but gives the impression of not being quite as dry as might be expected for a fino. Excellent balance and length. A versatile wine on its own or with food and a real bargain IMO.

    April 22, 2016 - A deep amber hue. Plenty of orange blossom and preserved lemons on the nose. Creamy and rich on the palate, which also shows a hint of sweetness. Lacks the pitch perfect structural composition of previous bottles but this is still a delight.

    April 3, 2016 - 91 Vino extraño. Color amarillo oro viejo. En nariz es reservado, sin la salinidad punzante que se esperaría en un fino; almendras amargas. En boca es suave, amable, sin acidez perceptible; orejones, frutos secos. Un vino fuera de lo común para la zona.
