The Palomino grapes destined for Elegante Fino come from the second press from pneumatic Wilmes presses. Following fermentation to between 11% and 12% alcohol the wine is fortified to 15.5% alcohol and then enters the Elegante Fino solera. Due to the 15.5% alcohol and the unique temperature and humidity in the Jerez cellars a layer of yeast known as the ‘flor’ will form on the surface of the wine. In order for this flor to form properly an empty space of 100 litres is left in the cask. This flor is the most important influence on the Fino wine as it protects it from the oxygen and gives it it’s unique aroma and character.

The wine remains for a minimum of 3 years following the traditional Solera system under the flor.



A young Fino bright pale golden in colour, crisp and dry with a floral pear character and subtle clean taste.



Ideal with nuts, tapas, shellfish and soup. Elegante Fino should be served chilled and consumed as soon as possible so as to enjoy at its best.
