|Bronze||International Wine Challenge||'Salty' tang, rockpools and beaches. Bone dry and savoury. Very fresh.
Bronze Winner 2018
|91||Wine Enthusiast||Medium yellow to the eye, this dry Sherry has a bouquet of caramelized apple, toasted hazelnuts and seawater. Toasted nut notes continue onto the palate, where they are joined by flavors of guava, pineapple, dried apricot, salted fresh bread and a tiny hint of vanilla bean that evaporate into a nutty finish. Best Buy.

|91||Wine & Spirits Magazine||A fragrant Fino, this wine shows its alcohol but still feels fresh in the middle – bright, spicy and brisk. It starts with a hint of honey and ends on chalk, a match for rich shellfish.
Joshua Greene – August 2021
|90||Wine Spectator||Friendly, with dried lemon peel, chamomile and white peach notes, backed by a zing of fleur de sel on the finish. Textbook fino. Drink now. 1,200 cases made, 100 cases imported. — JM

|89||The Wine Advocate||The NV Fino Bertola is a historic name in Fino production that has not had much visibility in the market. The nose is a bit different and is quite supple with some reductive notes and hints of broth, prawn heads and seaweed. The palate is medium-bodied, salty and mineral, tasty, ending with a slightly bitter taste.
