K&L Notes

Lots of attention has recently been placed on the historic region and stunning wines of Jerez. Given all the newspaper articles, restaurant by-the-glass placements, even a serious new book on the topic, the spotlight has generally avoided Rey Fernando de Castilla. Now that we finally have the wines available to us in California, it is our intention to change that and spread the word about this wonderful house. Founded in 1999 by Jan Petterson, a Norwegian who is a long-time veteran of the sherry trade, these are excellent sherries across the board, particularly the antique line featuring some very old, carefully kept up soleras. Petterson has proven to be quite the visionary, placing his bets on very high quality, limited production wines a good decade prior to the rise in interest in top quality, collectible Sherry. These wines are all of the highest quality and come highly recommended. (Joe Manekin, K&L Sherry buyer)

This is a crazy complex sherry full of candied caramel, nutty almondy flavors, and a rich, deep, long-lasting finish. Super good.

Spain

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant.
