Fino Sherry comes from the Jerez region in Andalucia in Spain. It is the lightest and most delicate style of sherry. Hugh Johnson (Decanter, August 2017, p.14) gave a wonderful description of fino as a ‘pale, fresh, dustily aromatic and bone-dry white wine that lives under a duvet of yeast until the day it’s bottled. No wine anywhere is drier. The flor has been feeding on every molecule of sugar, converting it into savoury umami, the very essence of appetite.’
