    Valdespino

    About Valdespino

    With over 600 years of experience crafting sherry deep in Jerez, Valdespino remains a traditional Bodega which, until 1999, had been owned in an unbroken chain since 1264 by the same family. Still dedicated to excellence, Valdespino is easily one of the most historic producers in the region – the land was awarded to the knight Alfonso Valdespino by King Alfonso X for his gallantry in liberating Jerez from the Moors.

     

    Viniculture

    Deep in the heart of Jerez (in southwestern Spain near Cádiz), Valdespino is one of the very few producers to craft single-vineyard wines in Jerez. The unfortified, dry Vina Macharnudo Alto Palomino is sourced from the Macharnudo Alto vineyard that is perched at 135 metres above sea level. This site is composed of classic Albariza soils. An expression of this glorious Spanish terroir, Vina Macharnudo Alto Palomino is a dry white wine made from 100% Palamino and it is fermented in sherry casks where it then ages on the lees for six months, gaining further complexity and texture. Rather than passing through the solera system to produce a Sherry, Valdespino chooses to bottle this as a single vintage wine. Historically, this style is known as “natural sherry” as the wine is not fortified.

    Valdespino Jerez Moscatel Tonel NV (6x37.5cl)

    Wine Advocate (100)

    The NV Moscatel Toneles has reached a mythical status locally in Spain. It’s an extremely old, concentrated and powerful sweet wine that was long forgotten, because there was no market for it. The color is dark brown, almost opaque with amber-green edges. The ever-changing nose is an explosion of spices (curry and cinnamon) and noble woods, and from the sheer concentration it displays a myriad of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, balsamic herbs and even a note of coconut. After some time in the glass the roasted orange notes of Muscat come back intermixed with very spicy incense notes. Give it more time and it smells of camphor. It’s fascinating to smell it over the course of a few hours - even days. The palate is immensely concentrated, with the alcohol perfectly integrated and the extreme sweetness compensated by a piercing acidity that reminds me of some century-old Madeiras. It ends with an acute coffee note. The aftertaste is eternal. It is exceptional that such an old wine (it could be over 80 years of average age) keeps the freshness and balance, but when this happens, the wine is exceptional. A world-class sweet wine that shows what aged Muscat is able for. With its 430 grams of residual sugar, this wine is indestructible, but only 100 bottles are withdrawn and bottled yearly from a single, large cask.
