The Fino ‘Inocente’, from the Premium collection, is one of their single-vineyard Sherries made from grapes grown in their Marcharnudo Alto plot. It is also the only Fino Sherry that is fermented in oak barrels and boasts a solera system with ten ‘criaderas’, while most Fino Sherries have only three. The Macharnudo vineyard is so admired for the quality of its fruit, that Valdespino decided to make a still wine, ‘Viña Macharnudo Alto’ Palomino. This wine is made from grapes from the highest point of the vineyard which benefits from both the cooling influence of the Poniente wind and optimum sun exposure. Fermented in sherry barrels, it displays a delicate white stone-fruit character supported by soft brioche notes.
Straw yellow in colour. Savoury aromas bread dough, almonds, olives and dried apples dominate on the nose. Bone dry and bracingly refreshing on the palate, with a saline minerality and a long and complex finish.
