"Darker green-gold. Clean, complex nose with light citrus, honeysuckle , fruit, spices, elements of fine white wine. Very smooth, fat and rich, but with a nice acid bite. Extraordinary sherry. Meursault to Jarana's Chablis."

“Made in a similar style, the non-vintage Fino Puerto Fino Solera Reserva is sensational. It offers hints of almond paste intermixed with beer nuts, salty sea breeze smells, and dried apricot and tropical fruit notes.”

"Weightier than most finos, this still has ample cut, with taut chalk, blanched almond, white peach, chamomile and salted bitter notes all stretching out through the focused, stony finish. Drink now.”
"5 years old.
Extremely pale greenish straw. Amazingly, recalls nothing more than a struck-match white burgundy on the nose. Mmm. There’s even quite a similarity on the palate! Though with the flor/bready overlay. Really fun. Very good acidity and a little bit of astringency. GV? 17/20 points."
Vinous Reverie Notes
A very dry Sherry, light and smooth, with just a hint of the sea, and attractive fruit. Very fresh, with a slight taste of tangy yeast. Matured in the cool, humid, salty air of the port town of El Puerto de Santa Maria. The location of the Lustau bodegas in the center of town provide perfect conditions for the aging of the best Finos in the Sherry area. The Puerto Fino has a style and consistency to the wine that is all it’s own.
