A pretty straw yellow colour, with golden hues and greenish tones. Profound, intense with balsamic notes which includes tropical fruit cocktail, roast banana, and citrus . There are also some floral notes covering a base layer of chalk and mineral from the Albariza soils. A gentle mouth, with a sweet sensation, well balanced with plenty of crisp acidity and sapidity. Full bodied and persistent. A white that express the albariza type of soil and its proximity to the sea.
The veritable new kids on the block, Bodega de Forlong have only been selling their wines since 2014 and are shaking up the staid world around Jerez. The only organically certified operation in the area they cultivate tiny parcels of Palomino, Pedro Ximinez and Tintilla Rota. Mixing it up with some Merlot and Syrah they are creating something fresh and vibrant from this most traditional of regions and it is immediately noticeable as soon as you see the quirky labels that the wines are anything but boring.
