Bodegas Cota 45 UBE 'Miraflores' 2022
- Low stock - 2 items left
Miraflores is the entry point and the wine to try from Cota 45 if you are at all curious about the unfortified Sherry renaissance. It is consistently a wine that lights up all the neurons in any wine geek's twisted brain.
There are two distinctive features of Jerez this wine imparts: albariza (chalk) and flor. There are three distinct types of albariza in the Miraflores vineyard—Lentejuelas, Lustrillo, and Tosca Cerrada, all important in building the structure and profile of this wine. The flor forms naturally and imparts a subtle, golden, nutty top note. This is complemented with steely lemongrass and ripping acidity. The delicate but firm through-line of briny chalk brings it together into a wine of lively tension and immense beauty. Even though 2022 was a hot vintage with lower yields, Ramiro has made a wine as finessed as Chablis and as unique as Jura Savagnin. What more could any wine lover ask for?
