Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

With the initial 2000 release they set the bar very high, achieving 96 Parker points. Now they have embarked on a second adventure where everything suggests that the results will be just as good. And it’s no wonder: Balbaína plot, the Santiago area and an invaluable inheritance. With this combination of factors, success is almost guaranteed for Viñas Corrales Fino, the project that Peter Sisseck (Pingus) and Carlos del Río González (Hacienda Monasterio) have set up in the D.O. Jerez-Xérès-Sherry (at the southernmost point of the Iberian Peninsula).

For this project the couple decided to go to San Francisco Javier street, in the Santiago area, one of the most popular and emblematic places in Jerez, where flamenco and art are waiting around every corner. There they acquired the San Francisco Javier winery, founded in 1974, which had previously had two other owners: firstly, Ángel Zamoran (who worked as a warehouseman for 37 years, searching for the best barrels in the local wineries and cooperages); and secondly, Juan Piñero (owner of the Camborio brand). Finally, this rich inheritance, including 74 Fino Camborio barrels, was passed onto Sisseck and Del Río, and is overseen by the Sanlúcar winemaker Ramiro Ibáñez.

As for the land and vineyard, which are crucial to the qualities and greatness of Viña Corrales Fino, the grapes come from 2 hectares in Macharnudo and 8 hectares in Balbaína. Specifically, this second plot, growing 30-year-old Palomino vines, belonged to Pedro Nolasco, Carlos del Río’s great-great-grandfather, who coincidentally was also the owner of Bodegas Francisco Javier (at that time under the name of Industrias Torresoto). It’s all in the family.

According to experts, this enclave, where the Albariza acts like a sponge, retaining the autumn rains and helping the vines to withstand the driest and hardest months of the summer, produces the finest wines of the D.O. Jerez -Xérès-Sherry (as we’ve already mentioned), making Viña Corrales Fino a little luxury with very limited production. Previous releases have had a waiting list. Given the quality and its history, that’s no surprise. It’s worth waiting patiently for just one bottle of Viña Corrales Fino Saca.

Sherry and wines from Jerez are probably Spain’s biggest contribution to the world of wine. Unique and special, there is nothing else like them in the world. A great diversity of Sherry wine is produced in DO Jerez-Sherry-Manzanilla de Sanlúcar, everything from sweet wines to fortified wines. Sweet wines are divided between Pedro Ximénez and Moscatel, depending on the variety used during production. Concerning fortified wines, there is a large range including Finos, Amontillado, Manzanilla, Oloroso, Medium, Cream and Palo Cortado, classified depending on the result of the ageing process under the ´velo flor´. A unique trait of these wines is the ageing process using the Solera Method, a system using various barrels from different vintages. The system uses stacked barrels, where a portion of a barrel’s contents is extracted and mixed with the lower barrel, with the barrel then filled with the contents of the upper barrel. Thus, the new wine is gradually coming to be thanks to the age of the rest of the content of screeds.
