Fernando de Castilla
100% Palomino Fino
Grapes are grown on estate vineyard “Pago Balbaino” on white albariza soils containing 70-80% limestone.
Antique Fino is a wine of four criaderas that originate from a selection of barrels from the Classic Fino solera that were set aside and left untouched for five years. In contrast to highly filtered, fairly young modern Finos that have been fortified only once, this wine boasts a formidable average of 9 years age at bottling, sees minimal filtration and a second fortification (the old fashioned way).

“The NV Antique Fino is eight years of average age when bottled; it’s fragrant and perfumed, feminine and subtle, with dry flowers and a rare balance between old and young. The palate shows a much more serious wine, pungent, intense, saline, sharp and at the same time delicate, complex and long. A most unusual old-style Fino. Bravo!”
