This spectacular Inocente Fino gained an impressive 92/100 points from Wine Spectator and has a lovely tangy, almond tinged palate. Fresh and crisp, this is a perfect palate cleanser but also a great match for salty seafood and white meats.

Uniquely Spanish wine, one which is criminally underrated. Once tasted, you'll be smitten.

'I could happily sip Valdespino’s textbook Inocente Fino all day right up to and including with the turkey'
David Williams, The Observer, Dec 2015.


'It is dry, it is tangy, it has a tingle of salty olives, it is savoury but zesty and is spot-on with seafood.’
Jane Claire, Birmingham Post, 15th June 2017

The Producer

Valdespino is one of the oldest and very few family owned bodegas in Jerez, with a history of sherry production going back six centuries.Today Valdespino belongs to the Estevez family and they own 750 hectares of their own vineyards in Jerez, which allows them close control over grape quality. Their Pago Macharnudo vineyard provides the grapes for their single vineyard wines, which includes this Fino Inocente. They are one of the only bodegas currently producing single vineyard sherries.

The Winemaker

Unusually for modern day Jerez, fermentation takes place in 600 litre American oak barrels. Once between 11-13% alcohol is reached, the wine is fortified to 15% and the veil of 'flor' (yeast) appears on the wine’s surface protecting it from oxygen and transforming its components. The wine spends one year in barrel before being transferred into the Solera system for blending. It spends eight to ten years in the Solera system, giving it great complexity and consistency. There are ten barrel stages or 'criadera', whilst most Fino sherries have only three. The more criaderas the more complexity there will be in the final wine.

The Region

The white Albariza soil is typical of the Jerez DO and comes from a layer of earth rich in marine fossils. The clayey texture of the soil absorbs rain like a sponge and when it dries out under the hot long summer sun in Jerez, it forms a layer that holds in the water, preventing evaporation. This reserve of moisture encourages the vine roots to develop, some reaching to more than four metres depth, allowing them to use this water reserve when needed.

Chicken Noodle Miso Soup

Comfort food at its best, a warming noodle soup pairs well with crisp, bone dry white wines such as white Bordeaux or Loire wines. For a similar flavour profile, try a bone dry Fino Sherry - a good textural match for the soup and a great palate cleanser.

Lemon & Parsley Fishcakes

A great lunch or supper option served with green salad or chips, (depending on your attitude), these light fish cakes are crying out for a fresh, zingy and in the nicest way possible, fairly neutral white to pair up with the lemon and parsley notes in the dish.

Anchovy, Red Pepper & Manchego Pintxos

A great snack or tapas dish, these fishy bites just need a drop of fresh, dry white to bring out all the briney flavours.
