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.

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.
