SKU #1273529 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The NV Fino en Rama Cruz Vieja is an unfiltered and un-fined Fino aged for an average of five to seven years under 'flor'. It has a textbook Fino nose of albariza soil, esparto grass, green olives and iodine, balanced and pungent. It has a medium-bodied palate with some volume and sweet green olive flavors. Only 1.260 bottles produced, which are for now sold in Spain and Japan. This is the bottling from May 2014. (LG)  (9/2014)

K&L Notes

We are thrilled to introduce you to the newest winery in Jerez, Bodegas Faustino Gonzalez, who just began commercializing and bottling wine from their very old solera in 2014. Formerly an almacenista and supplier to Domecq, Faustino Gonzalez first started ageing wine in soleras in the late 18th Century. They source fruit from their own vineyard, located in the Pago de Montealegre, and also choose to ferment their musts in old American oak instead of the more common stainless steel. Fino en Rama is unfiltered Fino Sherry in its purest form, and is the closest approximation of enjoying the wine directly from barrel in Jerez. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant.
