K&L Notes

This is one of the best, freshest, most representative lighter-style finos around. Gutierrez Colosia enjoys a prime location in El Puerto de Santa Maria, which, due to the confluence of the Atlantic and Guadalete River, allows for the development of a healthy layer of flor year-round to protect their soleras and contribute the tell tale salty, slightly almondy notes to the wine. For any fan of bone dry, mineral white wine who has not tried this, you should surely give this one a go — I would be hard pressed to find a tastier aperitif. While this is obviously a perfect accompaniment to Spanish tapas, it is also delicious with a simple Chinese stir fry or Japanese cuisine. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish Wine Buyer)

When Cinnamon served this fantastic Puerto Fino as a strarter with homemade gazpacho, I nearly did not make it to the main course! The frenetic energy of this Sherry was married to kaleidoscopic complexity... To say I was impressed would be an understatement. I had a hard time putting the bottle back in the fridge!
