Staff Pick Notes

The transformative power of a fading flor is on full display in this beautiful, powerful, and delicate wine. What began its lengthy life as a fino has evolved over many years to develop the yeasty, nutty, and dried fruit aromas that are interwoven with great finesse.

Fino Sherry works fantastically as an aperitif, as it pairs particularly well with...

Palomino

Accounting for over 90% of the vine plantings in Jerez, this relatively neutral grape provides the ideal “blank canvas” for the creation of fabulously complex Sherries (much like the Ugni Blanc grape does in Cognac).
