Sherry holds a special place in the history of wine as one of the oldest types still available today. At The Fine Wine Company we are dedicated to offering a range of sherries, all brought in from the specialist area in Andalucia where sherry is produced.
Our range represents the plethora of flavours and styles available from this tiny region from the lighter, dry Manzanilla to more intense, deep Pedro Ximenez with its sweeter tones lending it to use in desserts and as a digestif. There is an amazingly wide range of different sherry options available from such a small, distinct region of Spain yet we have worked tirelessly to ensure our range represents as many quality examples as possible.
This is effectively a blend of Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez Sherries with an average Solera age of about 8 years. The result is a rich and sweet but not cloying dessert wine. You could try this chilled or even over ice as an aperitif.
Barbadillo�s Finos are more Manzanilla like in style, but are aged in Bodegas with less exposure to the cooling sea breezes. The flor in the barrels grows vigorously in these cellars so the wine is a little more nutty and toasty than the more appley and yeasty Manzanillas of Sanlucar.
This Manzanilla has been aged for 8 years before bottling, making it a �Pasada� style. The extra ageing on a �pasada� builds complexity, body and adds a hint of oxidation as the veil of �flor� begins to thin. It is also an �En Rama� or �raw� manzanilla meaning the wine has been bottled straight from the cask with no fining or filtration to preserve the body and freshness. The �Pastora�, or �shephe…
Colour: A naturally sweet wine, of dark dense mahogany colour. Nose: Deep rich nose with reminiscent of prunes and chocolate. Palate: Sumptuous wine of great intensity, rich concentrated fruit in the mouth with a full, rich, succulence, seemingly unending finish.
The Fino sherry is pale golden in colour, with a delicate almond aroma, dry and light on the palate - due to the proximity of the wineries to the Ocean the sea breeze impart a singular personality to the wine.
Aged for at least 5 years it is a full-bodied, nutty sherry with a strong and fragrant aroma. Amber to mahogany in color, it is darker, smoother and less dry than amontillado sherries. Matured by the oxidation ageing process.
Golden in colour with an intense nose with the exceptional aromas expected of a late harvest: figs, raisins and prunes that blend with the pastry, typical of aging on lees. Light and intense in the mouth. Subtle, filling but not tiring. The acidity and natural sweetness play with ripe and fleshy fruit, leading to a long aftertaste in which the oak is so elegant
A clean gold colour with green highlights. The nose is marked by the French oak, which accentuates the raisin and prune aromas. A soft palate despite the high alcohol and a pleasant finish of ripe fruit and oak
An intense mahogany colour, intense raisin aromas and notes of roasted coffee and black chocolate. The palate is dominated by the raisined grapes with hints of dried fig. The concentrated fruit is perfectly assembled with the delicate roasted wood notes leaving an almost endless aftertaste and a hard to forget experience
This is a wine for connoisseurs, bottled almost unfiltered in order to preserve its golden color and racy character. The nose shows very complex and intense aromas, and a remarkable roundness in the palate (the traditional buttery touch of old finos) as a result of the autolysis of dead �flor� yeasts resting on the bottom of the vessel.
A wine with marked personality that can challenge the best whites: fine, clean, sharp, with outstanding sapidity and a firm structure that augurs years of satisfactory evolution in the bottle, although it is also ready to be enjoyed now.
By the end of 2010, and on the fifth birthday of the creation at Equipo Navazos, they were lucky enough that their friends at P�rez Barquero allowed them to celebrate it with a super limited release: a racy Amontillado from Montilla. An extremely old �NO� wine of exceptional intensity and concentration, and spectacular complexity, sourced from one of the row-end butts that rest in P�rez Barquero�s…
This is surely one of the most exciting releases of all from Equipo Navazos, which is harmonious yet at the same time rare and exotic as well as having that beguiling character that suggests not just its origin in the Albariza vineyards of Pago Miraflores in Sanlucar but also hints of aged white burgundy. This is still quite delicate on the nose, but plenty of concentration, flavours and mineralit…
A powerful if extremely elegant Palo Cortado, sourced from oxidative wines aged for an average of 30 years. Remarkable finesse and expressiveness, with very complex nose of amontillado and oloroso, plus citrus notes of orange peel.
Showing a well settled and profound profile as well as salty and cheerful vibrancy, La Bota de Manzanilla No.93 'Navazos' is an unbeatable match on the dinner table. It has been bottled after only the slightest filtration in order to preserve its genuine character and its deep golden colour with green hues as if straight from the butt.
