Vinification Details

  • The vinification process comprises of removal of the stalks, crushing, free-run juice draining and pressing. The main objective is to separate the wines which are to be aged under a layer of yeast, a process known as biological ageing during which a layer of yeast forms over the surface of the wine isolating it from the air, consuming the alcohol whilst giving the wine nutrients. The yeast is the miracle worker of biological ageing as it produces the typical characteristics of Fino Sherry.

History

  • The history of one of the largest Sherry houses dates back to 1760 when King Carlos III of Spain appointed His Excellence Don Joaquin as the 'Marqués des Real Tesoro' after leading his fleet to victory against an onslaught of pirate ships. In 1898 the same title was bestowed upon the grandson of the first Marqués who founded a brand name after his title 'Marqués del Real Tesoro'. This prestigious name is now carried around the world and associated with some of the most select Sherry of Jerez.

Regional Information

  • The wines from Marqués del Real Tesoro are aged and produced in the area of Jerez-Xeres-Sherry, a Denomination of Origin protected by the Sherry Board. The Estevez Group is the owner of more than 800 hectares of vineyards in this area. The sherry produced is reasonably pale and gets its reputation due to its delicate almond bouquet and its light and dry palate. The organic soil of this area is rich in calcil carbonate, silica and clay.

sorry tasted well passed its sell by date not sure I can finish the bottle might have been ok once

Great Bottle of Sherry

5 stars

I bought this to soak fruit in for my Christmas cake and what an excellent product, and so very inexpensive. It was also lovely to drink too

Love this!

5 stars

Brilliant, light but crisp and with just enough punch. Reminds me of the Harvey's Luncheon Dry of 30 or so years ago. Slightly concerned recently when it seemed to disappear from the shelves... I then I realised it was relabelled :)

Great value for money

5 stars

We actually buy it for cooking but it is eminently drinkable and ideal for sherry cocktails!

Excellent value

5 stars

This is an excellent sherry and a bargain at the price. Saddest part is that every so often it is unavailable in the store.

Great for cooking and mixing

4 stars

This is not the best fino example for drinking (if you are drinking it, chill it well and drink large glasses, not stupid little ones) but I use it all the time for cooking (e.g. Slow cooked young lamb or pork, clams, mussels and other fish sauces.) if you like your sherry in a cocktail, this is fine too - fact it's a waste to put anything better in a mix.

Terrific value Fino sherry

4 stars

Though probably not a sherry to set the connoisseur's heart a-beating, Tesco Fino is still an excellent day-to-day aperitif: as they say, it's young and fresh (and very tasty). Plus, it's terrific value.

I absolutely love this sherry

4 stars

I have been buying this sherry for years and now my local Tesco have stopped selling it! Their Medium Dry Sherry is too sweet. I am SO disappointed

a pleasantly clear fino

5 stars

I have chosen this one for some years now and am not thinking of changing.

Fino Sherry is excellent - as always.

5 stars

Your Fino sherry is excellent and I always buy it in preference to any other fino sherry.
