How to say it

Alveear Feenoh

Product guide note

Fino sherry is the lightest sherry and is very dry with powerful savoury flavours. It should be served chilled as an aperitif or with Spanish tapas. This fino is tangy and crisp with flavours of almonds and green olives and some yeasty notes.

Production information

Producer: Bodegas Alvear

Warmer and more inland than Jerez, Montilla is Pedro Ximenez country and the grape is used for both dry and sweet wines. The latter are the most famous; thick, sticky, black-as-soot wines that coat your lips. Alvear’s Solera 1927 tastes like all your Christmases have arrived at once. The C.B. Fino, which is made under the same flor yeast you find in Jerez, is a big surprise too.

Production note

A typical product of that special process which takes place in the cask under a veil of yeast, the “crianza en flor”. C.B. comes from Carlos Billanueva, the cellar master who in the early XIXth century marked the casks containing the best wines with his initials.
