Fernando Angulo

Sanlúcar de Barrameda, Andalucía

Confitero Ancestral +


This remarkable, genre-busting oxidative sparkling wine is unlike anything we have tried. The base is a sherry of Palomino aged seven years in a large old bota without flor, which is then re-fermented with the juice of Tardana from the 2021 harvest of his friend Mariano of Bodega Cueva, a unique method Fernando refers to as Método Sanluqueño. Here fine bubbles carry complex scents of iodine, almond and spice, washing over the palate with delicate flavours of sea salt, minerals and brine. A wine of uncommon complexity, this is as good as it gets.
