Marco de Jerez region, vinos de la Tierra de Cádiz
Alejandro (Alex) Narváez and Rocío Áspera are native Jerezanos and first-wave Marco de Jerez revolutionaries, reviving terroir and a variety of historical wine styles. It's a young project, conceived of in 2009 and producing its first bottles from the 2012 (first Tinto) and 2013 (first Blanco) harvests. It has a long gestation though: they have been a couple since they were in high school! In 2011, Rocío graduated as a Master of Warm Climate Winemaking from Cádiz University. Alejandro is half-French, and previously worked as a winemaker at Smith-Haut-Lafitte.

This is hand-picked organic Palomino grown in Pago Balbaina Alta, then given the Ancestral bubbling treatment. Not being a style supported by the DO currently, as with the other Forlong wines, it's labed Vino de Tierra de Cadiz.

Fermentation is the same for vinosity and for adding bubbles: the wine is bottled before the alcoholic fermentation has converted all of the sugar. This starts in tank and finishes in bottle. 8 months' later is a hand disgorgement and the bottles are refilled with the same wine. 12% abv. THe SPANISH ACQUISITION
