Six top-rated organic aperitifs that will make you look like a wine expert

3. Bodegas Robles Piedra Luenga Bio Fino

Region: Montilla-Moriles, Spain
Vintage: NV
Grape variety: Pedro Ximénez
Approx retail price (UK): £10
Medal in the Organic Masters 2018: Gold

One of the world’s greatest ways to start a meal is to indulge in the dry, salty refreshment of Fino sherry. And, with this example from Bodegas Robles, one enjoy such a pleasure safe in the knowledge that it comes with sound eco principles – the wine has been produced using 100% organically-certified grapes, which is a rarity in the sherry category.

Aged for a minimum of two years in old American oak casks under a protective natural-forming coating of flor – which is a film of yeast – this wine combines flavours of freshly-sliced apple with an almond-like character, and finishes with a lovely salty tang.
