En Rama Valdespino 2017 bottling
From the Miraflores vineyard. Average age six to seven years. No filtration or stabilisation. Bottled mid April 2017. Again with the new 2017 bottling this is slightly darker and more intense than the Tio Pepe, and a tad firmer than the La Gitana. Super-fresh and full of yeasty umami character as well as dried grasses. Long, savoury and very satisfying and once again intensely mouth-watering. Bring on the almonds! L&S (Apr 2017)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Bodega Valdespino is one of the oldest bodegas in Jérez, originating in 1264, when King Alfonso X gave Don Alfonso Valdespino the gift of land in the City of Jérez. He was one of 24 Christian knights who fought to regain the City of Jérez from the Moors. The company of today was formed in 1875, but commercial activities are thought to date as far back as 1430. In 1999, Valdespino was bought by Grupo Estévez who were able to fund and maintain the traditional methods for which Valdespino is famous. Valdespino Sherries remain among the very best quality available, and Inocente is still the best Fino in the market, as well as being the only Sherry to be produced from the grapes of a single vineyard. Subtle changes to some of the other wines appear to have been for the best. Tío Diego Amontillado is now a little softer in style making it even more appealing and Don Gonzalo has been re-released in the VS range of older Solera wines.
Ho Ho Ho! If not now - when? 'Tis certainly the season for these gorgeous bottles of joy. Make a party an even more memorable affair by pulling out a beautiful bottle or two of something special. Crisp Manzanilla sherry to open up proceedings (and give to Father Christmas) lovely zinging Wellington Palo Cortado for the mince-pies, the sensational Boal Madeira is a great friend of Christmas pudding and then Port to finish any meal in style. Ho Ho Ho!
