|Varietal||Palomino Fino, Pedro Ximenez|
Valdespino is a tiny crown jewel of a winery that exists within a much larger wine and spirits company called Grupo Estevez. The goal of the winery is to use all the possible resources of the company to make some of the finest, most distinctive and artisinally-produced Sherries that are available today. This "spare no expense" approach applies to everythng from the entry-level Finos and Manzanillas all the way up to their uber-rare and amazingly complex VOS and VORS wines that hearken from ancient and well-kept soleras.
The origins of this historic bodega date back to 1264 when Don Alfonso Valdespino, one of 24 Knights responsible for expelling the Moors from Jerez, was rewarded for his efforts by the king, granting him land in the city of Jerez. And thus began Bodegas Valdespino! - Polaner
Wine Notes: Contrabandista Sherry has a nutty aroma with toffee caramel tones. It is smooth and persistent on the palate with a delicate, rich finish. Drink as an aperitif or try with soups, pates and foie gras. It is delicious with creamy cheeses such as Camembert and brie. Serve at cellar temperature or slightly chilled.
