Aromas of fresh Brazil nuts with a typical hint of umami. On the palate still nutty, Brazil nuts joined by fresh almonds and some soy notes. Refreshing, with a tangy woodiness too, finishing umami. Oh, and did I mention this wine is from Jerez, Spain, which means it’s one of those new “en rama” sherries everyone is talking about?

Drink as an aperitif, or with clear soups for a first course.
