Product Description

Like the Sabrego, this is another of José's experimental cuvées, though one I wasn't sure about at first. This is bottled from a single hogshead of Tamaguelos-grown Doña Blanca allowed to grow a skinny layer of flor for 12 months and then bottled without filtration. As I said, I initially thought this might be too far out, but after sleeping on it I convinced myself that as long as the Sydney wine-bar scene isn't knocked out by a rogue meteor, there may be a market for it in Australia! As it happens, today the wine looks much more settled than it did in Spain. It remains intrinsically edgy, like a haunting brew of José's own Gorvia Blanco and a Nicolas Joly Savennières. The aromas are rounded and nutty/lanolin-y, complemented by citrus-oil zesty notes. There is also lovely balance on the palate, with great breadth of musky, savoury fruit. It's engaging, appetising and, like most wines of this ilk, it will be polarizing. Delicious with hard sheep-milk cheeses such as Manchego.
