Medium – Jerez De La Frontera – Singular Bota, Aged 19 Years, NV NV
Deep amber in colour with an orange rim, pronounced aromas of walnuts, marmalade and sultanas leap from the glass. Made from 90% Oloroso (Palomino) and 10% Pedro Ximénez with 5 years in bota, the sweet and savoury blend is in perfect harmony. A zinging, bitter-orange is replaced by fried corn and biscuit on the finish. The texture is velvety, but not overly rich. Beautifully layered with a ringing finish that is tangy and fresh. Serve chilled before or after a meal.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
Diatomists is a wine brand challenging the status quo in Jerez. We love fresh, floral and fruit driven wine. All our biologically aged wine can be traced back to the soil where the grapes were grown. Our barrel-aged range is made up of carefully selected botas chosen for their freshness in harmony with tertiary flavours. Diatomists are part of a new movement of growers realigning the focus away from the bodega back to the soil and distinct terroirs. The solera system put the region on the map, we are here to prove that unique exceptional soil produces unique exceptional wine.
