Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Valdespino Moscatel Viejísimo Toneles is a Muscatel wine produced by Bodegas Valdespino in the D.O. Jeréz-Xérès-Sherry following the traditional method of criaderas and soleras.

Bodegas Valdespino has a very remote origin. The first member of the family devoted to wine-growing was a contemporary of King Alfonso X the Wise, in the 13th century. At present, Valdespino belongs to Grupo Estévez Valdespino and is a benchmark in the ageing of Jerez wines, known for their traditional methods in the processes for producing their wines.

Valdespino Moscatel Viejísimo Toneles is made using the traditional Jerez method of soleras and criaderas. It is a wine of unknown age, though it is believed that it may be around 75-100 years old.

Valdespino Moscatel Viejísimo Toneles is a very complex, intense and harmonious wine. It is wine made using an ancestral system and a very long ageing that have given it unique characteristics, and have made it worthy of being awarded with 100 Parker points.

Valdespino Moscatel Viejísimo Toneles is a wine of great complexity, intensity and persistence. Walnut, coffee, very fine liquor, spices, chocolate and many more notes can be appreciated. On the palate it is powerful, with a lot of body. It has really exceptional flavours, among which citrus tones, orange, grapefruit and tangerine stand out. It is sweet but at the same time very fresh due to its remarkable acidity. It is a very balanced and very lingering, almost infinite wine. A unique wine.

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.
