Description

This quina is from a traditional recipe used by the Valdespino family for over 100 years. It is old Oloroso wine from the VOS and VORS soleras blended with a little Pedro Ximenez from El Candado. The wine is aromatized by fruits, roots and herbs such as Cinchona bark, gentian root, licorice, nutmeg, dried grapefruit and dried Seville oranges,.

Notes: Dark mahogany colour with coppery tones. The nose is concentrated with layered aromas of aniseed, nutmeg and dates. Notes of quinine and a satisfying bitterness on the palate lead to a long and complex finish. This is the perfect aperitif, served in a tumbler glass on the rocks with a cinnamon stick and a twist of orange

Valdespino is one of the oldest bodegas in Jerez, with a history of Sherry production going back six centuries. Back in 1264, Alfonso Valdespino was one of 24 knights who fought against the Arabs for the city of Jerez with King Alfonso X. As a reward for his efforts he was given land that formed the basis of the bodega. Today Valdespino belongs to the Estevez family, who purchased the bodega in 1999.

They own 750 hectares of their own vineyards in Jerez, which is extremely rare in this region and allows them close control over grape quality. They are the only bodega to make single vineyard Sherries and are also renowned for their VOS (Very Old Sherry) with over 20 years of ageing and VORS (Very Old Rare Sherry) with over 30 years of ageing
