Bright clean pale gold, legs.
Fresh then some complexities come through; a faint trace of oxidation, flor bitterness, perhaps a touch of almond, slight salinity, traces of dried flowers, lees and a trace of autolysis - not so much the age of the wine as that of the solera, a hint of Palomino fruit adds to the mix for a quality nose.
Similar, fairly soft and good and dry, very dry feel despite legs (glycerol), smooth, fairly low acidity and appetising with that trademark Fino bitterness and long clean finish.
This is Sandeman's middle range Fino, between the Fino Seco and the Rare Fino. It is around 5-6 years old and comes from a solera laid down in 1887. The name "Don" refers to the famous Sandeman logo of the Don in a Capa Negra (black cape) which you can make out on the label. Sandeman Finos have had a variety of names such as Dry Don and Apitiv.
