20.00

Valdespino is one of the most famous sherry producers in the world, steeped in history and rooted in tradition. Its history dates back to the 13th century, when King Alfonso X rewarded the knight Alfonso Valdespino for his help in liberating Jerez from the Moors. Valdespino was given a parcel of vineyards and started making wine. With an unwavering commitment to the demands and expense of traditional Jerez winemaking—and the revered Eduardo Ojeda as its winemaker—Valdespino produces some of the region's purest and most intense Sherries, from some of its oldest soleras. The other key to the greatness of Valdespino is its extraordinary belief in terroir, and its willingness to spare no expense in expressing it. 95% Palomino (25 year old plot in Macharnudo), and 5% Pedro Ximenez. The Palomino is aged under flor for 1 year and then introduced to the PX from a ten year solera. uite a lot of caramel and milk chocolate, with prune jam or prune tartlets. Also hazelnut cream, honey and (slightly burnt) brown sugar. Orange peel and a faint maritime note, hints of old wood as well.
