  1. Valdespino PX Yellow 750ml
    Valdespino PX Yellow 750ml
    With six centuries of sherry production under their belts, Valdespino lay claim to being one of the oldest sherry bodegas in the region. The heart of Valdespino is their vineyards. One of the few bodegas to release single-vineyard wines, their Macharnudo holding is one of the grand crus of Jerez at the highest altitude and located on the famous, and sought-after bright white Albariza chalk soils.

    From their savory and fresh Manzanilla Deliciosa and Fino Inocente, to their unctuous and intense Solera 1842 and Pedro Ximenez wines, the quality is world class and the bodega still ferment a proportion of their wines in wood, adding layers of complexity to the finish product. One of the few estates that age in solera far in excess of the DO regulations for all their styles of sherry.

    This is outstanding value PX with rasins, Christmas spice, grilled walnut in a lovely rich yet fresh frame. Don't get us wrong, it's sweet and delicious but still comes of with some nice bright citrus peel and orange fruit. Yum!

  2. Delgado Zuleta La Goya Manzanilla
    Delgado Zuleta La Goya Manzanilla
    SANLUCAR DE BARRAMEDA (100% Palomino)

    Manzanilla is the appellation name for a Fino sherry which is raised at Sanlúcar de Barrameda, a relatively cool, humid seaside village. The resultant sherry has a definite tang of the sea, and perhaps a suggestion of camomile flower (manzanilla is Spanish for camomile). Much finer, and more delicate than finos from Jerez, inland, and usually bottled at about 15% alcohol.

    We bottle and ship fresh every two months, to ensure this definitively crisp, refreshing young white wine is always in spanky form. Camomile and oyster-shell aromatics, Chablis-like mid-palate fruit, long and tangy. SCOTT WASLEY

  3. Equipo Navazos I Think Manzanilla Saca de February de 2020 375ml
    Equipo Navazos I Think Manzanilla Saca de February de 2020 375ml
    It's hard to believe that Equipo Navazos will celebrate their 15th anniversary next year and already produce around 40,000 bottles of wine, mainly sherry, per year. They are responsible for putting sherry back in the spotlight.

    I tasted the numbered bottlings, the rare and more complex wines from 82 through to 93 and the regular bottlings and collaborations with other producers. You might notice some numbers are missing, because they also release small batches of spirits aged in sherry casks (like the extraordinary La Bota de Gin 81), but I haven't yet started tasting and rating spirits. LUIS GUTIRREZ, eRObertParker.com

    They bottle this once a year, every year and it offers ridiculous quality for the money. This is the latest bottling too so is extremely fresh and vibrant. Sea spray and green apple, with crushed shells. Wonderfully textured yet beautifully fresh and full of life. PWS

  4. Sanchez Romate PX Cardenal Cisneros 750ml
    Sanchez Romate PX Cardenal Cisneros 750ml
    100% Pedro Ximinex, Spain\n\nSánchez Romate Pedro Ximénez Cardenal Cisneros; 18% alc. Completely opaque old brown colour, very glass-coating. Dusty, with a more pronounced raisiny character. Smooth and creamy on the palate, darker than the Colosía and with that boiled sweet character of (relatively) young PX, treacly-chocolaty, with a burnt side to it. Wild and elemental. www.wine-pages.com\n\nThe outrageous and decadent member of the sherry family is Pedro Ximenez and is characterised by an almost dark brown to black colour and viscous texture that stains the palate with sweet nutty, raisiny flavours. It's best chilled to counter the viscosity. Ultimately this is a delicious and unique sweet wine. \nROSCOE\n

  5. Williams Paola Medina Fino Palomino de Anada 2010 500ml
    Williams Paola Medina Fino Palomino de Anada 2010 500ml
    Based on old vines in Pagos Añina and Carrascal (jerez). Product of a cool, humid vintage.
    The 2019 saca is the last bottling of this incredible Fino.

    Hints of brassy development, really mature standing grass, traces of fine caramelised toffee as pure perfume, weightless and dry. Great depth without weight, very true to style, tangy as heck, whisper clear and still with a trace of whisky-wildness. SCOTT WASLEY

  6. Luis Perez Caberrubia Fino NV Saca II, Palomino Fino
    Luis Perez Caberrubia Fino NV Saca II, Palomino Fino
    It's a blend, without solera, of 4 vintages of statically-aged Carrascal Fino … selection material which does not make it into La Barajuela (below). It's based on 45 year old bush vines, yielding just 5 tonnes/ha, from hard, laminated barajuelas. The highly selected fruit is picked in early September and has about 6 hours of soleo. Only 35% of the free run juice is taken. Without racking, it's set to age in oak casks, undergoing natural fermentation well into December. In February, the young wine is pressed off lees and classified. The Finos are placed in almost topped bota, thus limiting the growth of flor, instead emphasising the input of Corregidor's soil aromas. Each cask is monitored and drained-or-filled to precisely regulated the desired influence of yeast in the wine style TSA

    There is a new NV Fino Caberrubia, the Fino that shows the style of the winery, and they plan to make different blends of different vintages that won't be blended and aged in barrel together: all vintages are kept separate and then blended for bottling. This first bottling, which shows no bottling date or any information, is a blend of two casks from 2016, one from 2015, two from 2014 and one from 2013, and all the wines are kept in barrel with lees. It finishes with esparto and nutty flavors. (93) LUIS GUTIÉRREZ, The Wine Advocate

  7. Navazos Casa Del Inca Pedro Ximenez 2015 750m
    Navazos Casa Del Inca Pedro Ximenez 2015 750m
    The young and sweet 2015 Pedro Ximenez Casa del Inca from Montilla-Moriles is unoaked, matured in concrete vats that are traditional in the region, and wants to show the character of the sun-dried fruit. It's bottled with 15% alcohol, as the must is fortified, first to 12% and later to 15%, and with some 415 grams of residual sugar. It's very sweet with aromas of molasses, honey and maple syrup, with a dense palate, great concentration and lowish acidity. LUIS GUTIERREZ, The Wine Advocate

  8. Callejuela Manzanilla de Pago Callejuela 2014 500ml
    Callejuela Manzanilla de Pago Callejuela 2014 500ml

    As with its unfortified sister, this is from the little vineyard 'Hacienda de Doña Francisca, within Pago Callejuela. Fruit classified as a palma. Statically aged - unmoved, or mixed for 4 years under flor which received no further nutrient. It went into botas at 15% and is bottled at 16% abv.

    Deep gold, a gentle tisane of old pressed flowers, honeysuckle toffee in branch water and a glint of steely mineral. Meyer lemon, pistachio, salted dough, apple pip, yellow petals. Restrained and elegant it's super dry, with great chalky grip, and has soft and round suppleness giving relief in mid-mouth. Overall, it feels delicate with great character. The vertical wall of fresh chalk depth persists from entry all the way through to after perfume - wine like the proverbial ghost that walked through a wall. TSA

  9. Callejuela Macharnudo Manzanilla 2014 500ml
    Callejuela Macharnudo Manzanilla 2014 500ml

    The fruit is from 'la Choza' vineyard inside Pago Macharnudo, and classified as a palma.

    Deep gold with just a fringe of bronze. Salt caramel nose is brilliant with spicy dried Seville orange rind, and a great depth of real perfume, seductive rather than heady, really beautiful. Deeper and earthier again, pecans and rye toast, barley and lots of spicy cake-bakey goodness. Sweet and sour and really dynamic in the mouth, it's round and lifted, with barley water edged by chalk-starch and the whole thing open, vibrant and welcoming. TSA

  10. M. Ant De La Riva 'La Riva' Palomino de Pasto pagos Marcharnudos 2017
    M. Ant De La Riva 'La Riva' Palomino de Pasto pagos Marcharnudos 2017

    M. Antonio de la Riva (by Willy Peréz and Ramiro Ibañez)
    Manuel Antonio de la Riva founded his Jerez bodega in 1858. Located on the famous Arcos Street in Jerez, La Riva enjoyed great success with wines sourced from Manuel's vineyards in Pago Marcharnudo. More than a century later (after Manuel's death), it was bought by Domecq, who added La Riva to some of their best wines. With the decline and devaluation of Jerez after the 1960s, Domecq slowly began eliminating brands and La Riva ceased to exist; the brand names were sold to Beam International.

    Before the end of La Riva, young winemaker Luis Pérez (who later founded Bodegas Luis Pérez) had started working as a winemaker in several of the Domecq subsidiaries: Blázquez, Florido, Hermanos y Sancho and … La Riva! Luis learned the vineyards, practices and wines of the La Riva brands just before they were deleted. With the historical knowledge of Luis to guide them, next generation winemakers Willy Pérez (son of Luis) and Ramiro Ibáñez decided to recuperate the brand and its historical wines before they became entirely forgotten. Willy and Ramiro bought back the rights to the La Riva brands in 2017, and have since negotiated access to some of the famous plots from which they were sourced (and which had since become anonymous fruit sources for un-aspirational Sherries), in Balbaina Alta, and particularly Macharnudo.

    M.ANTONIO de la RIVA Macharnudo Palomino de Flor con asoleado

    La Riva Macharnudo Blanco recuperates a great wine based in the 'el Majuelo' vineyard (specifically in the tiny sub-vineyard parcela, el notario) within Pago Macharnudo[1]; a historical wine of el Marco de Jerez which disappeared under Domecq in the 1980s. 'El Notario' faces north (just under el Castillo de Majuelo, a castle crowning the pago) at 115m altitude, 18km in from the Atlantic, in a mixed poniente-levante setting. The soils are Tosca cerrada and barajuelas with a high level of diatomaceous fossils promoting great freshness. The fruit (Palomino 84) is hand-picked, with individual bunches selected in repeated passes over 2 months, which gain a degree or so of alcohol from an 8 hour soleo. It's then whole bunch pressed (only half the juice is taken). An ambient spontaneous fermentation in 600l  bota precedes 20 months ageing under a film of flor. 1,500 bottles were filled in May 2019 at 14% abv, 5.5 ta, and neither filtered nor fined. It faithfully reflects the origin and style of the structured white wine elaborated under this brand in the past. THE SPANISH ACQUISTION

  11. Navazos La Bota de Palo Cortado Sanlucar 75 750ml
    Navazos La Bota de Palo Cortado Sanlucar 75 750ml
    Navazos already bottled a very young Palo Cortado from Sanlúcar with the number 52 back in 2014, and it's now time for a new edition, the NV La Bota de Palo Cortado 75 "Sanlúcar." It's produced with grapes from the Miraflores La Baja vineyard in Sanlúcar de Barrameda from the 2010 harvest--even if the vintage date is not shown on the label. Fermented in stainless steel, it achieved a natural alcohol level of around 12% and was straight away fortified to 17.5% alcohol. This has developed very nicely since the first bottling, with more precision and character, and it feels more "palo cortado," with notes of aromatic herbs and a sweetish tone, hints of apricots and a very expressive and tasty finish. It matured in topped-up, 225-liter barriques (a rarity in Jerez) for seven years. 2,800 bottles were filled in May 2017. LUIS GUTIÉRREZ, The Wine Advocate

  12. Navazos La Bota de Manzanilla Pasada "Bota Punta"  No 60 500ml
    Navazos La Bota de Manzanilla Pasada "Bota Punta" No 60 500ml

    The so-called NV La Bota de Manzanilla Pasada 60 Bota Punta is sourced from a special cask "Bota Punta" that was already bottled as numbers 20, 40 and 50. This particular cask from the Manzanilla Pasada 'solera' from the Calle Misericordia winery from La Guita was isolated, because it has a very marked biological character - a very old Manzanilla that keeps more 'flor' than the other butts in the 'solera' and shows less oxidative. The other particularity is that this cask is always refilled with wine from the other 14 casks from the 'solera', and therefore keeps an average age a couple of years older, around 17 years, while keeping a younger/fresher profile. They all have the iodine and saline character, the seaweed, low tide and the vertical palate. This is the most special -and scarce and expensive - of all the manzanillas pasadas from Navazos. Really world class. This is the one with depth and sharpness beyond belief, a step up in complexity, elegance and balance. It's funny how the wine seems to overcome oxidation and starts getting sharper and sharper again. This is truly outstanding. LUIS GUTIERREZ robertparker.com

    A 'bota punta' is the final, ground-level cask at one end of a solera: different by nature (since it is sampled more often, and may be exposed to different environmental conditions to the rest of the solera) and different by tutelage (often refreshed by the cellarmaster or capataz from the solera itself, rather than from younger criaderas). Absolutely grand, not so much in terms of its aromas, which are harmonious, arresting and tangy, but in terms of its concentrated, challenging and highly detailed flavours: fresh, mouthwatering and tongue-coating, a kind of Japanese banquet reduced to a single glass of wine, with a cascade of tuna flake, seaweed, ginger and green tea allusions.

  13. Williams Paola Medina Amontillado de Anada 2001 500ml
    Williams Paola Medina Amontillado de Anada 2001 500ml
    ABV 20%. Only 750 litres bottled. After delicate fermentation (17-22 degrees), the original Fino was aged biologically at 15.5% and later re-fortified to 18%. Later amontillados (after 2003) have not been re-fortified at all. This, Paola's first Amontillado, was aged biologically for 10 years, by which time it had naturally evolved into a developed Fino without flor, and was classified Amontillado, re-fortified and aged oxidatively.

    Supremely elegant, mineral and vibrant with great complexity. Brilliant amber in colour, very complex aromas, dry in the mouth, mineral, rounded and persistent. TSA

  14. Williams Paola Medina Palo Cortado de Anada 2002 500ml
    Williams Paola Medina Palo Cortado de Anada 2002 500ml
    2.9 pH, 6.3 TA, 20% abv. As with the other wines, the fruit source is Pagos Añina and Carrascal. This wine is from a fruit selection of extremely fine young material which Paola hoped might develop naturally into a Palo Cortado. After 17 years' ageing the wine was finally classifed Palo Cortado in 2018, and this is its first bottling as such.

    Extremely fine and silky wine, elegant and mineral. Golden mahogany to look at, complex tobacco-timber-mineral aromas, delicate and subtle in the mouth, the elusive fine-unctuous double nature of Palo Cortado in clear view. Balanced persistence in a really long finish. TSA

    Super deep and complex, rich and saline, with a pure developed perfume. Mapled acorn-rich, lightly glyceric, deeply spiced, strong at the rim, releasing to an ethereal boof from a structural base. Fine glazed toffee nut, orange blossom, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, dried chestnut honey, toasted hazelnuts, delicate tangerine caramel, brandied citrus, sandalwood. The acidity itself is incredibly complex, carrying brine and rind, fine old wheat and praline in a gloriously patinated, running mouthfeel. TSA

  16. Navazos La Bota de Viejo Cream 38 375ml
    Navazos La Bota de Viejo Cream 38 375ml
    The Lot 38 La Bota de Viejo Cream Bota No is the sequel to the sweet oloroso that was Lot 19. It originates from the blending of a Pedro Ximenez over a century ago when the Solera was started. It has a fairly light bouquet that opens with aeration: hazelnut, macadamias, subtle note of caramel and nougat. The palate is medium-bodied with a lovely viscous opening: a touch of spice, eau-de-vie, caramel and cafe latte underpinned by beautifully judged acidity and a sensual harmonious long finish. Superb.
