  • Grape variety(ies): Palomino fino
  • Style of wine: Vin de méditation
  • Alcohol degree: 20%
It has a superb amber colour tending towards orange and above all intense and elegant aromas of nuts, beeswax and light touches of spices. On the palate, it is dry and very refined, with aromas of hazelnut and a soft minerality, stretched by a long maturation that refines it considerably. Its infinite refinement invites you to prolong the tasting... 93/100 Wine Advocate, R. Parker

Viticulture

It takes its name "C.P." from Calle Ponce, the street where the solera was once stored. The grapes come from 50 year old vines from a single vineyard, Inocente, in the famous Pago Macharnudo Alto.

Oenology

A watchful eye is kept on the development of the young wine and if it has the required qualities, it will be selected to follow a different path and therefore age differently. It will then progressively go through the 4 criaderas and the solera, before being bottled at 25 years old.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Very versatile, it is an excellent partner for spicy, stewed dishes, hard cheeses and smoked meats or fish.

Domain
In 1264, a group of 24 knights led the troops of King Alfonso X to reconquer the city of Jerez, which was under Moorish rule at the time. Once the city was reconquered, the king rewarded this group of noble knights with properties and lands. One of them, Alfonso Valdespino, also received a vineyard on the outskirts of the city. This is the first official record of a Valdespino involved in local viticulture, and although there is evidence of some commercial transactions in Jerez in 1430, A.R. Valdespino was established as a company (producing and selling wine) in 1875. In 1883, Valdespino became an official supplier to the Spanish Royal Household. In 1910, the company registered the brand "Sacristia" where the oldest wines of the winery are kept. In 1999, the Estévez family, renowned producers of Sherry and Brandy, acquired Valdespino and opened a new period. Valdespino is the only sherry house that controls the entire production process: vineyards, vinification, ageing and bottling. It has facilities in the three towns of the D.O.: Jerez, Sanlúcar and El Puerto. It is also one of the few owners of vineyards in Pago Macharnudo, considered a "grand cru". Finally, the winery is the only one in the appellation to produce single-vineyard wines: Inocente, Tío Diego, Viejo C.P. and Cardenal. The wines are still fermented according to the age-old traditional method. And very small...
