Gutierrez Colosia ‘Fino’

While on the topic of Sherry…

Gutierrez Colosia is located in El Puerto de Santa Maria on the site of the ruins of the Palace of the Count of Cumbrehermosa -Cargador de Indias. This riverside site gives the Bodegas a perfect microclimate and humidity that favours the development of flor:

This entry Fino is aged about 3 years (Fino and Manzanilla are seldom more than 8 years old due to the limits of biological aging)

Colosia Fino

Nose  Nose: Hmm.. Dry, and full on yeasty, doughy scents and lime pith. Salted butter, freshly pulled roots. Rather pungent nut-like (won’t say its actually nutty) smack.

Taste  Palette: Refreshing and lip smacking and dry. Quite salivatingly so. Aperitif and calls for some ham or olives to cut.I had sweet and savoury biscuits and it went quite well. Starts with some but aromatics, in fact, like almonds, and a bit heavier on the tongue than the nose suggests but otherwise it is as expected.

Finish  Finish: Short by whisky standards but its a dry aperitif white. Not bad at all. Nut aromatics and yeast.

 

No sliding scale that’s just unfair.
