This is similar to a Fino, that is grown under a Flor, but a bit inland from Jerez.  Slightly pink/gold in color, clear and bright.  The nose is slightly nutty with a nice salinity.  There is also a slight apple cider note.  On the palate, this is very smooth.  Slight red apples with a bit of warmth and bitterness.  It does not have a lot of acidity.  The finish is a bit bitter.  The wine is slightly oxidized but not bad.  It begs for salty food.  Drink over the next year or two.
