This is the. Bodegas Cortijo La Fuente.
A Fino from Mollina, heart of Andalusia.
Made from Pedro Ximinez, in solera for 5 years. Vineyard farmed since 19th C.
Limestone and sand.
You can sense the “ heavinesses “ of the Pedro Ximiniez on the nose, but it’s an almond fest, dry, w a touch of barrel and raisin to finish. Brandy like.
Not heavy on the palate.

As the white before….
This is local, and the chef knows the combination! Stood up against slow cooked korean style ribs from local meat. Do not do this often but people when in Marbella do go and have dinner here. The wine…. Fruit forward but so well balanced. As always less is more. @sauvage — 4 months ago

Diferente a un rosado clásico, sin acidez, con cuerpo y recuerdo. Fresa y frambuesa.

A minor ingredient in Bordeaux blends, Petit Verdot is one of those grape varieties that enjoy greater popularity away from home. Notoriously late-ripening, grapes can have difficulties undergoing veraison in Bordeaux, especially in cold years, remaining unusable green berries (hence its name, “little green”). While Petit Verdot often fails to ripen in Bordeaux, it seems to flourish in warmer regions, such as some parts of Australia, California and Spain, where its long-cycle offers winemakers a hedge against global warming. With over 3,000 hours of sunshine per year, the region of Ronda in southern Spain has turned out to be an ideal location for Petit Verdot - which even here, doesn’t get picked until late October or early November.
Cortijo Los Aguilares’ Tadeo is one of Ronda and Spain’s most recognized Petit Verdot bottlings. Sourced from the estate’s El Calero plot at 900m (nearly 3,000 ft) elevation in Ronda, in the province of Málaga. Fermented in stainless steel and aged in French oak for 15 months. Dark ruby color with purple rim. Fragrant, very attractive, complex nose with layers of black fruit (bramble), smoke and graphite, herbal notes, sweet spices, vanilla and violets. Full-bodied, structured, powerful tannins. Impressive. — 3 years ago
