CORRALES JEREZ

Bodegas San Francisco Javier is the new joint venture in Jerez between Peter "Pingus" Sisseck and the owners of Hacienda Monasterio.
Together they bought an impressive solera with the idea to produce Fino wines, plus eight hectares of vines in Pago Balbaína and a further two in Pago Macharnudo. This is the very first bottling, and after the rave reviews from wine critics, we can expect this joint venture to continue, promising two different wines in the future.

Parker • 96 points
"This is a powerful and fresh Fino, pungent and persistent, long, amazingly elegant, vibrant and alive. I was floored by the complexity and elegance of this wine."

93+ points for the technical quality of the wine, but the style (Sherry) is not my cup of tea. Anyone that has interest in my second bottle? 😂

Bodega Antigua Casa De Guardia

Pajarete Málaga Pedro Ximénez Muscat of Alexandria

Pajarete or Paxarete is a traditional sweet wine from southern Andalusia. Historically, such wines came from the Pago de Pajarete, an ancient vineyard site in the Sierra de Cádiz, coveted for its wines since at least the 16th Century. Located about 38 miles north east of Jerez, Pajarete’s vineyards were devastated by phylloxera at the end of the 19th Century and never replanted. But growers in the neighboring province of Málaga continued using Pajarete’s name to describe wines made in this style. This Pajarete is a blend of Muscat of Alexandria and Pedro Ximénez, sourced from vineyards in the Axarquía and Montes de Málaga subregion on slate soils. The Muscat comes from Axarquía, closer to the coast, while the Pedro Ximénez from Montes de Málaga, further inland. They are vinified separately and blended together after fortification. After blending, they are oxidatively aged in old American oak botas for an average of 5 years using the solera system. Expressive nose. Candied fruit, caramel, wood. Smooth, balanced. — 14 days ago
