Kingsley Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2021

I could smell this for days. Grapefruit, lemon peel, juniper, peach, sea water, grass. It keeps evolving. Palate is clean with just enough body to make it interesting but not heavy. This got better with time in the bottle. Outstanding! — a year ago

Manuel Antonio de la Riva y Pomar

La Riva Manzanilla Pasada Balbaína Alta

Another amazing “almacenista” wine by Ramiro Ibáñez and Willy Pérez, from a small solera of 20 casks they bought from a small producer. Grapes were sourced from a small plot in the Cerro de los Cuadrados, within the Pago Balbaína Alta, located between Jerez and El Puerto de Santa María, not far from the coast (hence marked by the Atlantic influence).They selected 5 casks (with an estimated age of 15-18 years) for this bottling and left the rest to make Amontillado. Intense nose, notes of yeast, sea breeze. Elegant, concentrated, great texture. — 20 days ago

Gutierrez Colosia

Amontillado Seco Jerez-Xérès-Sherry Palomino Fino

Fantastic entry-level Amontillado by Gutiérrez Colosia, located right by the sea in El Puerto de Santa María. Approximately 9 years of aging in the solera system. Dark amber color. Elegant nose with caramel, citrus (tangerine, orange zest), nuts. Sea breeze and smoky notes. Medium-bodied, saline, tasty. Long finish, hazelnuts flavors. Great value — 2 years ago

Mon Amour Red Blend 2017

Really fun/funky orange wine from Jerez, the sherry region of Spain. Definitely an oxidative style of wine with a nose that is evocative of a amontillado. The palate is lovely with nutty brioche notes and that sherry-like finish but isn’t nearly as saline. Fun lunchtime cheese wine. — 3 years ago

Bodegas Hidalgo

Wellington 20 Years VOS Palo Cortado Sanlúcar de Barrameda Palomino Fino

VOS (very old Sherry), 100% Palominofrom the estate’s vineyards in Pago de Miraflores in Sanlúcar (just 3km. from the Atlantic Ocean) and Balbaína in El Puerto de Santa María, also exposed to the Poniente winds from the Atlantic. Due to this Atlantic influence, wines from these Pagos tend to be lighter, more delicate than those further inland, and this is a great example. Delicate, elegant nose with aromas of orange peel, raisins and a hint of spices. Slightly salty (clealy Sanlúcar). Persistent, hazelnuts — 2 years ago

Socaire

Palomino Fino Blanco de Albariza 2018

Unfortified 100% Palomino from the Pago de Matalian vineyard in Chiclana, the southernmost point within the Jerez wine region, on Spain’s Atlantic coast. Fermented in old Sherry casks and aged for 24 months without flor.

Because the Jerez-Xérès-Sherry appellation requires its wines to be aged in bodegas within the towns of Jerez de la Frontera, El Puerto de Santa María and Sanlúcar de Barrameda (the so-called “Sherry triangle”) growers outside these three towns traditionally relied on large bodegas in Jerez to have their wines aged and sold (under different brands). As sherry sales declined, prices paid to these growers became unsustainable and most vineyards in towns like Chiclana were abandoned (from the nearly 3,725 documented in the 1890s, only 139 remain). A partnership of Ramiro Ibáñez and Primitivo Collantes, Socaire is a commendable effort to preserve Chiclana’s winemaking tradition and to revive almost forgotten wine styles (such as dry, unfortified white wines) that were common in the region before the advent of the solera system.
