Cabernet Syrah 2017, Finca Moncloa, Cadiz
A cherry red wine with intense aromas of red and black fruits and a balanced palate with notes of fruit, spice and oak.
On the route of the ‘Pueblas Blancas’ in Andalucia, Arcos de la Frontera is considered to be one of the most beautiful towns in Spain.
The area is generally associated with sherry production, but in fact has a long forgotten tradition of making red wines, with records dating back to the 14th century.
Moncloa is produced by the González family of González Byass and Tio Pepe sherry fame from their own vineyards and is a blend that includes what they say is an ancestral indigenous variety called Tintilla de Rota that had almost died out. According to Wine Grapes (Jancis Robinson, Julia Harding and José Vouillamoz), it’s a synonym of Graciano. Either way it’s interesting that it should be in Jerez, albeit in a very limited way.
