Valdespino Quina Aperitivo Jerezano

Valdespino Quina Aperitivo Jerezano

Item # 44781 750mL

Another great addition to the venerated sherry portfolio from Valdespino, the Quina takes old olorose wine and pedro ximenez from the soleras of El Candado and macerates them with cinchona bark, licorice root, gentian and additional herbs and spices. The result is a brooding savoury nose that turns bitter sweet on the palate just like a good tonic should do.

In Rioja, Navarra, and the Ribera del Duero (which have the most stringent requirements) red Crianzas must be aged a minimum of two years; Reservas, at least three...

Jerez

Sherry actually gets its name from our anglo-inability to pronounce the word “Jerez,” the town at the southern end of Spain in which the wine is produced. Like Champagne, Sherry can only be called Sherry if it comes from this specific region. That said, there are other “Sherry-styled” wines worthy of note produced outside of the Sherry D.O. (known as vinos generosos). Montilla, lying to the north-east of Jerez, produces some of the finest Pedro Ximénez in the world.
