PRODUCER: To revive tradition and fully express the unique terroir of Jerez are the goals of Ramiro Ibáñez, the talented mind behind Cota 45. This visionary is one of the most knowledgeable winemakers in Jerez, the storied region in southern Spain. Ramiro, a Sanlúcar native, graduated with a degree in enology and spent three years working around the world before receiving a dream job offer to return home in 2009. Since then, Ramiro has been consulting for different bodegas, and in 2012 he was able to start his own project, Cota 45. The name is a reference to 45 meters above sea level, the point where he believes the best albariza soils can be found.
WINEMAKING: From five different plots in Miraflores Alta and Miraflores Baja, one of the most celebrated pagos in Sanlúcar, with 80 to 90 years old Palomino vines planted at 50 to 60 meters above sea level facing west on three different type of Albariza soils: Lentejuelas, Lustrillo and Tosca Cerrada. This winegrowing region is renowned for its chalky albariza soils and coastal setting, which impart brightness and salinity onto wines produced here. Made in a ‘sherry-like’ style, this wine ages under flor but is not fortified, with a focus on fruit character.
TASTING NOTES: The nose gives intense floral aromas, with notes of very ripe white fruit and fresh yeast. The mouth is zesty with citrus, orchard fruit and a saline edge typical of the area. Result, a fresh, savoury wine, easy to drink.
