Sacristía AB Primera Saca Manzanilla Palomino

Apples on the nose, bone dry and very oxidised. Not sure I would buy this but it paired amazingly well with creamy fatty fish — 3 days ago

Sierras de Málaga Moscatel

This vino dulce natural (“vin doux naturel”) is a fantastic example Málaga’s traditional sweet wines – the favorite of Catherine II of Russia and Victorian ladies and the city’s main export until vineyards were wiped out by phylloxera at the end of the 19th Century. It is made with Muscat of Alexandria grapes, fermented and fortified to reach 15% (In Málaga, this style coexists with another type of non-fortified sweet wine confusingly named “vino naturalmente dulce” or “naturally sweet wine” made with sun-dried grapes. Due to the high sugar concentration, they don’t require fortification or mutage). Pale golden color. Delicate, perfumed with aromas of pineapple, flowers, cream pastries and peach yogurt. Feels quite light, balanced, not overwhelmingly sweet. Incredible value — 24 days ago

An interesting story. Sweet wine was all the rage back then it seems. d’Yquem very popular with the Russians pre communism as detailed in the excellent book “Stalin’s Cellar”. He took over the cellar from the Tzars.

Awesome. I’ve always felt Barbadillo is making the gems hidden in plain sight of the sherry world. Will have to track down some of that Solear. Looks great.

@Josh Morgenthau Barbadillo was the highlight of our sherry pilgrimage. Tasting the entire range (including some seriously old shit) in the bodega itself. Incredible wines. Lovely people, too. If you ever get to go there let me know.

San Antonio Valley Syrah 2017

Very smoky on the nose and palate but also smooth and fruity! I love it. From those of you from California: I seem to really enjoy wine from Paso, would this be considered the same region? — 15 days ago
