Bodega San Francisco Javier
Spain > Andalucia > Jerez

Golden hay-like colour, notably richer than mass-produced styles of Fino. The nose is a delight, with perfumed aromatics of camomile, cherry blossom and almonds. Thanks to the en rama nature of contact with the lees and the absence of fining, there is a creamy palate that finishes with a moreish lick.

96/100 - The NV Fino Viña Corrales Pago Balbaína bottled in May 2022 shows different from the 2021 bottling, as the wine is influenced by the dry year and has more smokiness, flintstone and yeasty aromas. This is round and lush, with a buttery sensation in the texture and the textbook notes of esparto grass and wet chalk. The finish is bone-dry, tasty and almost salty. They are also adding the wine from Viña Corrales in Balbaína. I also sampled the wine from the solera as it is now, and it's impressive how the wine seems to have changed in one year and how the influence of the different yeasts is noticeable on the nose, with the influence of the Beticus yeasts in the smokiness. The 2022 saca contains 7,900 bottles. - Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate

94/100 - The effect of Peter Sisseck's announcement in 2017 that Sherry was the finest white wine in Spain, and that he was investing in a bodega and a vineyard, was electric. Here was a maker of top fine wines cheering for Jerez. His wisely chosen adviser? The wonder-worker from Sanlúcar, Ramiro Ibáñez. And the wine? About eight years old, bottled like a white Burgundy, saline, yeasty from flor, savoury, with dried herbs and a brisk dry finish. - Sarah Jane Evans MW, Decanter

Bodegas San Francisco Javier is anew joint venture in Jerez between Peter "Pingus" Sisseck and the Del Río family, owners of Hacienda Monasterio in Ribera del Duero where Sisseck works. The Del Ríos are from the family that owns González-Byass, meaning they have strong links with Jerez.
They bought an impressive solera with the idea to produce Fino wines, plus eight hectares of vines in Pago Balbaína and a further two in Pago Macharnudo.
This is the first bottling, a small saca from Balbaína, but in the future, the idea is to produce two wines, one each from one of the pagos, the other one being Viña La Cruz from Pago Macharnudo.
