Upon demand, Gutierrez Colosia make occasionaly bottlings of super-textural Fino straight from barrel, or 'en rama'. Sacas of 'standard' Fino del Puerto, 3yo, are bottled light and fresh at 15%.
Drift wood, oyster shell, and chamomile reveal instantly on the nose. There is a mild white pepper note and a floral spice. The palate is round and balanced, it persists and carries the weight and texture of barrel-condition Fino with ease. Toasted pistachios, cashews, and roasted sesame seeds add a nutty weight, while a touch of peach skin and pepper-citrus-astringent hold all in line.
