for this region?


The home of Flamenco and Moorish architecture is the southernmost wine-making area in Spain. While the area does produce some quaffable still wine, it’s the country’s great fortified wine, sherry, that is most often associated with the region.
Climate is a major factor in wine production, and there are three climate zones within the region. The west coast along the Atlantic, with cooler climes is home to the subregions Jerez and Sanlucar de Barrameda, which primarily grow the Palomino grape for use in Fino and Manzanilla sherries. The hotter climate in the south is best suited for the sweet sherries of Malaga and Sierras de Malaga, using the grapes Pedro Ximinez and Moscatel. The hot, but drier conditions farther inland in Montilla-Moriles are also more conducive to sweeter styles. 
In the northern part of the region, still wines are produced from the white grape Airen, as well as reds from Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot.

  • Barbadillo Pedro Ximénez Jerez-Xérès-Sherry la Cilla NV


    Amazing - but intensely sweet and thick. Could easily serve on its own as a dessert. Loads of raisins and other dried and stewed fruits. Wine maker's notes could not be more correct - 'Sweet sherry produced by the traditional system of sun drying the Pedro Ximenez grapes. Elegant dark mahogany colour with an amber touch. Wonderfully cloying with... Read More

  • Bodegas Alto Almanzora Red Blend Almeria Este 2008


    Decent nose to this garnet colored wine. Chocolate, dark cherry and red berry fruits with spice notes. The round gripping tannins pull the fruit and spice to a juicy acidic aftertaste dominated by the well framed fruit. The aftertaste is medium long just like the body. The mid palate is best, picking up a sweetness to the dark cherry backdrop. I... Read More

  • You'll notice, Mark, the term is in English, so this is aimed at the export ... a glass from the solera in Andalucia. How close that actually is is likely dependent on how soon after bottling you popped that cork, of course. This is one exmple of the focus on what filtering removes from our drinking experience. Moving up to Muga in the Rioja, t... Read More
