Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker and Jancis Robinson

The very aromatic NV Palo Cortado was sourced from Williams & Humbert in Jerez, from a special bota selected by Paco Salas, the capataz of the bodega for 33 years. It has aromas of candied fruit, flowers and even cherries in liqueur under the spirity and nutty aromas natural in this kind of wine. It has a certain creaminess and is very elegant, clean and balanced. This is power and elegance. These wines are presented in unusual 500-milliliter square glass bottles. As with all the wines in the collection, 1,000 half-liter bottles were filled in 2011.

Incredibly, mouth-wateringly tangy – the tang of apricots and dry apricot syrup, tamarind and sumac, of cured loma. Savoury, tense, salty, like charred bacon rind. And dust, again. Fine, sandalwood dust. Ringing in the mouth, long and slow fading for a long, long time. Just a little awkward bitterness right on the finish – needs cheese. Because it's in a clear glass bottle I wouldn't keep it for too long.

The winery was created with the intention of making Reservas and Gran Reservas, since ‘Reserva’ was the wine which cellar owners in the past used to reserve for offering to their best clientele. Located in Fuenmayor (Rioja Alta), the winery tries to combine tradition and modernity. For this...
