Luis Perez 'El Triangulo' Cadiz, Jerez, Spain 2018
When most people think of the region of Jerez the first thing that comes into mind is Sherry. But the region has more to offer, from interesting whites aged under flor to fun reds made with the Tintilla grape. Tintilla is a native varital from Spain, actually genetically the same as the Graciano grape grown in Rioja as well as other regions, it has a long, 500+-year history in the region. El Triangulo is a fun spicy and bright berried red wine with a bit of a chalky velvet structure on the finish.
