An absolute charmer on the nose and the palate, this unique blend (for Jerez at least) offers up bright red berry fruits and a lick of orange zest. The palate feels juicy and elegant, very fruit focused but in no way simplistic. Again, the feeling is of crushed berries and orange juice, shored up with lightly spicy tannins that have a pleasing chunkiness, without in any way feeing obtrusive.
It’s hard to connect this with Jerez, it feels like a super refined cuvêe from the Rhone valley. I don’t mean this in a bad way, it’s an amazing wine. Just so surprising.
60% Pinot Noir, 40% Syrah.
