|Taberner 1, VdT Cadiz||2006|
The innovative brainchild of Vicente Taberner, partner in the Sherry bodega Fernando de Castilla and a passionate wine enthusiast with a vision to produce high quality red wines in the hills near Arcos de la Frontera, northeast of Cadiz.
'Full-bodied, the wine exhibits layer upon layer of spicy, sweet fruit, superb balance and a 60 second finish. Put this exciting wine in a blind tasting of your favourite northern Rhones and prepare to be shocked. Enjoy it through to 2027.' Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, Issue 169.
Taberner 1 is the top cuvee, which begins life in wooden open top fermenters followed by 18 months in new French oak. Very much at the heart of 'new wave Spain', Huerta de Albala is possibly the most significant development in Andalucian winemaking since the creation of Sherry!
