Gonzalez Byass "Tres Palmas" Fino Jerez (500ml)

SKU #1127468 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The NV Fino Tres Palmas is pushing biological aging to the limit, with 10 years under flor, getting close to an Amontillado, with a light brown color and a nose of hazelnuts intermixed with the marine and saline notes. It reminds me of varnished wood, with a very sharp palate, intense and complex. The flavors stay in your mouth for minutes, no doubt helped by its 16% alcohol. This is a selection of four barrels I’d call Fino Amontillado. (LG)  (8/2013)

 Gold in color and ideal on the nose courtesy of alluring walnut, nutmeg and briny aromas, this elevated fino is both crisp as well as viscous. Flavors of almond skins, saline and dried apricot finish with purity and supreme confidence. This is fino taken to the next level. (MS)  (5/2016)

Jancis Robinson

 In late September one cask of the 150 of the 10-year-old Fino-Amontillado solera was chosen for this bottling, without filtration or clarification. Pale glowing tawny. Strong nose of cushiony bread. Really lively and fresh - a step up from Dos Palmas in terms of crystalline precision. Seems to be more acid and indeed is 5.52 g/l as tartaric - presumably because of concentration in the cask. Salty and nutty - walnuts. Really exciting. 18/20 points. (JR)  (12/2015)
