PRODUCER: The Pérez family have been viticulture, estate workers and winemakers for generations. In 2002 Willy Pérez and his father Luis, a professor of oenology at the University of Cádiz, set up their bodega on a hill just northwest of Jerez. Willy and his father are part of a group of dynamic producers who are rediscovering Jerez terroir and traditions through an international lens. They're exploring the historic sites that used to define and give character to Jerez wines. They work with the traditional varietals like Palomino Fino, Pedro Ximenez and Tintilla de Rota (genetically related to Graciano) in Balbaína, Añina, Macharnudo and Carrascal. They want the origin of their grapes to show, over biological and oxidative ageing techniques, so they don’t fortify their wines.
WINEMAKING: Grapes are handpicked in several stages, the first picking was of slightly green grapes to give higher acidity in the final wines. The grapes are gently pressed and cool fermentation is in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then transferred to 80 year old sherry casks where it ages biologically, under flor, for a year before bottling.
TASTING NOTES: Aromatic on the nose with citrus peel and spice. Super fresh juice, salty savouriness, dried fruit. A long fresh finish.
