Los Abandonados Oloroso 6/8 El Puerto de Santa María 500ml

SKU #1195070

This is a very cool find from our friend Alex Russan (of Alexander Jules). In Jerez, Alex befriended a fellow Sherry conocedor, who mentioned a friend who had inherited an old solera of 8 Oloroso barrels in El Puerto de Santa María. Apparently, this solera was begun in the early 1800's, and has been untouched, not at all topped off, for the past 40 years. The wine is accordingly intense, incredibly high in acid, and concentrated. I remember being nearly taken aback by the sheer concentration of acidity, the exotic spice qualities and the unapologetic rancio Oloroso-ness of this wine. Then again, I tasted this during a two day stretch that included selecting our two barrels of very old Amontillado out of a 26 barrel solera, and this following a Galician road trip and long evening drive from Cuenca to Jerez. So my recollection may not be perfect! Either way, this is a rare find and should be good fun for anyone serious about their soleras (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish & Portuguese wine buyer)
