I really love Catavino – it’s such an informative and innovative source of information on Spanish & Portuguese wines. The food of the region is key, but it’s just as vital to know about the great wines available too. This is the place to find out!

Bodegas Navarro Fino

It’s spring time and summers just around the corner. Today, as I walked over to the 20th editon of Gourmetour, I was blessed with a slight breeze that cut down the sun’s growing heat in Madrid. However, despite the heat, everything has been green and beautiful as a result of some brief heavy rains – quite the exception considering the past few years. The weather, in combination with the red and white Spanish wines, along with a Sherry or two, made for a great day. I will share the following notes as an intro to my summer sherry season – the time when I find my refridgerator consistently storing a bottle or two for me to sample. So enjoy the note, and if your starting your sherry season, drop us a line and let us know what your drinking!

Till soon,

  • N.V. Bodegas Navarro Montilla-Moriles Fino – Spain, Andalucía, Montilla-Moriles (5/8/2006)
    Incredibly intense nose of nutty salt air and rich hazelnut aromas. Creamy in the mouth with a strong alcohol and good acidity. Lush and tasty this wine screams of nuts and the aromas associated with them while the salt air rounds it out. A very intense interpretation of the style but throughly enjoyable.
