Alcohol/vol 15%
Pale straw color. Very delicate and sharp, with clear almonds notes and autolysis. Soft entry, round with structure, volume and character but as well fresh and saline. Long wine and persistent. Enjoy as an aperitif, while cooking, and accompanying the whole meal with it. It is ideal matching seafood and products of saline flavor and with acidity. Very interesting to observe the evolution with the years. The wine goes up in color intensity, gaining in depth and complexity, and it will remain being enjoyable during many years.

As with many other wines from the José Estévez group, there is a special bottling of Valdespino's flagship NV Fino Inocente in magnum, but in this case they have kept the bottles for six months as the wine is from the saca otoño 2016, the autumn bottling from 2016. So the wine is offered with some extra bottle age. It has all that you expect from Inocente, a long aging wine fermented in bota from grapes grown exclusively in the Macharnudo Alto vineyard and bottled with an average age of ten years. All the textbook aromas and flavors are there, coupled with the elegance and mineral intensity the Macharnudo white chalky soils provide. Customers who purchase one of this scarce magnums probably know Inocente already. This will have a longer development in bottle. Only 600 magnums were filled in the autumn of 2016.

High-pitched, featuring talc, chamomile, chalk and jicama notes, followed by a pure, stone-tinged finish. Very graceful, lacy and long. Drink now.
