Valdespino Inocente Single Vineyard Fino (375mL)

Freshness is the key to fino, and half bottles under cork tend to develop quickly, so this one is brought in frequently in small volumes. Check the bottling code to ensure fresh stock – the first two digits are the year (12 here) and the next three digits are the day of the year (199 here). This is a rare single vineyard fino, with excellent balance, persistence, lovely freshness of nutty flor character and a long, tangy, salty finish. Classic Jerez maritime salty texture makes this the ultimate oyster wine. $16 at Half Bottles and Wine Box Warehouse.
