DO Montilla-Moriles is a small DO found in the heart of Andalusia near the city of Cordoba. With vineyards inland and <600m above seal level it’s considered to have a semi-continental climate with long, warm summers and little rain. Pedro Ximenez rules supreme in its chalky, sandy limestone soils where it is used to make both dry and sweet wines aged in soleras under flor. As the PX ripens easily in this climate, reaching 15% without any issues, unlike it’s oxidised Jerez counterpart, the wines are not fortified and offer a much lighter, fruitier and less overpowering profile than their Andalusian neighbour.

Bodegas Robles is a 32-hectare family owned Bodega that has been producing sherry style Montillas since 1927. In 1999, under 3rd generation siblings Francisco and Pilar, they became certified organic and turned their attention to several agro-environmental projects to improve soil quality, help retain moisture and using crop cover to encourage new flora and insects to the vineyards. They pride themselves on sustainability, eschewing the use of excessive packaging and ideally only want to sell their Fino & Sweet PX in BIB – hence the brilliant price!

Tasting note: Fresh and fruit forward with a toasty light floral nose. On the palette it has a little thickness but is green and vegetal with notes of green olives; capsicum and a gentle mezcal smokiness.
Winemaking Detail: Made from certified organic grapes which are hand-harvested in mid-September. The grapes are soft-pressed and left to ferment naturally on their wild yeasts.
