Osborne Fino Quinta 75CL
Osborne - Fino Quinta
Nose: seems fairly delicate at first, in the sense that the classic notes, like yeast and olive brine seem a little muted. Lots of almonds though, as well as chamomile. Faint honeyed notes. Also more waxy notes than in a Fino from Jerez. Even a hint of diesel, which is not uncommon for Fino produced in El Puerto. Overall not very intense but with an interesting character.
Mouth: starts rounded, with a brief hint of fruitiness, although it is dry of course. Quickly turns towards firm bitter notes of grapefruit and lemon peel, as well as herbal tea and green olive juice. Radicchio. Some almonds to balance it, although it stays on the racy side. I had the impression its character tends to vary a lot with the temperature of the wine. A soft hint of smoke in the aftertaste.
