I also got a last-minute bottle of the Saca Mayo 2019 of the NV Fino Tradición, which had just been bottled, and it really felt like I was drinking it straight from the bota. In fact, the palate had some tenderness that I didn't notice in the other bottlings, and the word that came to my head when drinking it was spherical, a round wine with no edges, especially after it had been in the glass for a couple of hours. The way to compare these bottlings is to pour a glass of each and follow its evolution for a couple of hours, because otherwise it's difficult to see the differences straight away. This looks like another epic bottling of the old Fino from Tradición. (LG)
Tradición is famed for its collection of very old wines, shepherded in a tight, dry style. In this Fino Tradición, the wines average 10 to 12 years old, double the usual age. It is firm, strong in acidity and minerality; rather than fruit, what you will smell here are stones and salt sea. Although it’s not labeled as a Fino en rama, they treat it like one, with only a slight filtration before bottling, sustaining the wine’s enveloping, unctuous body. For gambas al ajillo.
Shows some oomph for a fino, with singed almond, dried lemon peel and quinine notes that streak through, backed by citrus oil and walnut hints on the finish. (JM, Web Only-2017)
