The Enoarquia on Albariza


Signing off for a few weeks of family vacation but before I go I couldn’t not post links to two quite fantastic long form pieces on albariza – the white, calcium rich soil that characterizes the pagos of Jerez, Sanlucar, Chiclana and Montilla Moriles. You can find them (in Spanish) here and here

They really are excellent: required reading for anyone who really wants to understand the wines of the region. It is typical of the author – Carlos wrote for me the best backgrounder on the velo de flor (also in English) and in general the writing on enoarquia.com is top drawer. 

So get studying chaps. If you need an excuse to learn Spanish this is it!
