Bumped into the chap from Bodegas Tradicion just the other day and had a nice chat. They have done as much as anyone to reinvent the sherry business around premium wines and this is a high quality wine indeed. As you will see – a bottle with the “old labels” and indeed it is the second saca of 2013.
I like the dating of the sacas but I like the wine more. It is a beautiful chestnut reddish brown and has a fine sweet, caramel, maybe slightly citrus or resiny nose – some hay bales there. On the palate there is a nice acidic buzz, caramel flavours, maybe burnt orange peel and a little bit of cedar wood at the end. Nice fresh finish but not all that long.
