'Caberrubia' Fino Sherry Palomino

Palomino harvested from Carrascal vineyard in four passes during the season. Grapes exposed to sun for approx. 4 hrs to elevate sugars, no fortification necessary. Vintages prob-2013-2017 Saca iv.
N: Old wooden boats, tinned peaches, iodine, the sea baby!, Hazelnuts,Orange and lemon rinds, wax, petroleum, …
P:Oranges and peaches, So delicate, some wood, tactility seductive, Viscous yet refreshing.preserved citrus. The “ inner mouth energy” is tremendous.
Not overly oxidative, I could go on.
Find some.

Wow so good! Natural sparkling rosé with lotttsss of sediment. Juicy orange character makes this very drinkable. I love how inventive Portuguese wines are lately. — 8 days ago

Xisto Cru Tinto 2016

Nose has blackberry jam, moist leather, fig paste, charred wood, chopped dark chocolate and faint vanilla.

Palate has dried blueberry, blackberry, dried black currant, muddy garden soil, faint dried strawberry with mild tannins and medium acidity.

Solid pairing to a baked 'Mac & Cheese' dish fancied up with a béchamel sauce, Gorgonzola & Fontina cheeses, breadcrumbs and Casarecce Corte pasta. (Interpretation of a recipe courtesy of Joanne Weir)

'Kite Duck' Beiras Baga Maria Gomes 2020

Very interesting wine (and label) from Portugal. Tastes like an orange-rosé hybrid. Cloudy and natural. Orange peel, herbal, tart. — 10 days ago

Estate Grown Syrah 2017

Conflicting. Nose hits a savory olive and meaty syrah sweet spot. But palette and finish don’t match. Almost artificial. And half a bottle gave one helluva headache. Another WE 94 ??? — a month ago

Monte Ory Rosado Garnacha 2019

I am loving this Rosada from Spain! Full of red berries, kiwis, nectarine, wet river rock and herbs which pop on a nice long finish! Wonderful viscosity..looks like a Rosè but performs as a red. — 10 days ago
