An impressive wine from one of Jerez's most exciting Bodegas. Grapes for this wine come from the famous El Notario vineyard in the north of Macharnudo Alto, a mere 18 kilometres from the coast. This special site has vibrant, chalky layered albariza soils with a relatively high clay content meaning vine roots are able to penetrate the planes of the soils which helps them survive the hot, dry summers.

A layer of flor develops over the wine whilst aging, and matures under this veil for 10 months leading to a salty, mineral, and hedonistic wine with generous ripe stone fruit notes. This is a truly gastronomic wine that shows off how good unfortified Palomino can be. 

About Bodegas De La Riva

Ramiro Ibañez and Willy Perez are integral to reframing Jerez. Both grew up in the region and nobody knows more about its history and terroir. At De la Riva they are changing the face of Sherry, by taking Jerez right back to its roots. Their wines are
not fortified. Instead, they use a process called asoleo, where grapes are left in the sun to naturally increase their alcohol potential.

These wines were made in the vineyards, with the region classified by soil type – considered to be a crucial element in selecting sites for age-worthy winemaking. This connection to the vineyard was lost when Sherry became industrialised. Ramiro and Willy are bringing back these traditions with spellbinding results.
