03/06/2018 – Fino Camborio, Bodegas Juan Piñero

(2018) Juan Piñero was a new name in Sherry for me. Although the company was founded in 1992 in Sanlucar, with a second winery purchased in 2000, wines under its own brand were not released until 2013. This Fino has considerable age in the 'almacenista' style, the blend is around ten years old from a 400-barrel solera. Loads of developed flor aroma, more intense than many Finos, chalk, nutty Cox's pippin apples and a green tinge of fresh olive oil. Bone dry in the mouth, saline, with quite a limpid, slightly oily mouth-filling texture, lots of almond and green-fig and bitter flavours, salt and excellent acidity in the finish in a very superior and totally delicious style of Fino.  Watch the video for more information and food-matching suggestions.

    I’m a folower your from Cádiz (South of Spain). Your tasting notes are very interesting, at least in my humble opinion. And your videos are very good to improve my english level at the same time that I learn about my passion, the world of Wine.
    I have decided to contact for inform you that Juan Piñero died last Thusday. It is a very sad new for the Sherry.
    Thanks again for your videos and best regards
