94pts Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate

Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate:  "The golden-colored and pungent NV Fino was bottled for the first time in 2018 (marked with a neck label that says "Saca 1/18"), and the idea is to do one single bottling per year. The wine comes from three vineyards in Pago Añína on albariza soils, so it's a single-vineyard Fino, fermented in bota like yesteryear and organized in four criaderas and one solera that averages over eight years of age. The younger criadera is topped up with the wine from their own vineyards. The winery where the wine matures is halfway between Jerez and Sanlúcar, so it combines the active flor from the cooler location and the volume of a wine that is only bottled and refreshed once per year. It feels old, complex, developed and with volume, with classical aromas and a bone-dry palate. Superb! It was bottled en rama into 2,666 bottles that were filled in November 2018."            Jun 2019

Winery:  "This rare Fino is named after the Poniente winds, cool and humid Atlantic western winds. Following the arc of history, winemaker Alberto Orte embraces his family’s rich tradition of solera system wines from Montilla-Moriles to create this unparalleled project from El Aljibe. 

We recommend serving chilled in a white wine glass, starting around 45F with optimal consumption reaching 54F. A gentle decanting will help the wine express itself more swiftly. One may also age this wine in a temperature-controlled cellar. The qualities that develop with time will differ from the young wine, gradually deepening the secondary characteristics and losing the more primary “biological” notes."
