The origins of the Bodega Valdespino date back to 1264 A.D. The first member of the Valdespino family to cultivate and age Sherry wines was Don Alfonso Valdespino, one of 24 Christian Knights who fought for King Alonso to re-conquer the City of Jerez from the Moors.
This Fino offers the classic, lean, dry, flinty, citrusy appeal that needs jamon, olives, oysters or sardines (or all of the above). Inocente is unique in the sherry world that it is sourced from a single vineyard.
D.O Jerez – The south western town that is responsible for Sherry. Sherry is a fantastic product that uses local conditions, the ‘Solera’ fractional blending system and in some styles the unique Flor yeast that grows on the top of the maturing wine to craft a wine that cannot be replicated anywhere in the world. They range from young to quite old and dry as dry can be to luscious and sweet. Dry Sherry is made with Palomino Fino, sweeter wines use Pedro Ximenez (PX) and Muscat of Alexandria (Moscatel).
Palomino Fino – The main variety of Sherry production. It grows in the chalky white albariza soils which gives a dry, acidity, minerally and faintly aromatic base wine to craft into works of Sherry art. Used for Fino/Manzanilla, Amontillado and Oloroso production.
