Maestro Sierra Fino 75cl
Wonderfully rich, complex and aromatic. Salty, nutty and expressive, with lovely perfume. The palate is rounded and nutty with a savoury, tangy edge. Thrilling stuff: really complex and broad. 94/100'
These are wines made in super old barrels, moved using manual siphoning, settled by time, bottled unfiltered and unsulphured. The labels feature a fox being chased by a hunt, which Ana from the bodega says represents Maestro Sierra being chased by the larger sherry houses. Some of their practices (and the resulting wines) sit outside the normal rules for sherry, but the Consejo Regulador recognises the unique nature of the wines and grants them exceptions.
