In September last year we doorstepped Bodegas Jesús Nazareno on Day 2 during our 7th visit to Montilla-Moriles here.
Bodegas Jesús Nazareno is located in the town of Baena in the easternmost part of DO Montilla-Moriles.
The Fino Cancionero de Baena won a gold medal at the XXIII Concurso Ibérico de Vinos Premios Mezquita – Córdoba in 2017.
At 15% ABV, this is made from 100% Pedro Ximénez grapes and has around 8 years of biological ageing under a velo de flor.
Our Tasting Notes
Nose: There is red apples, almonds and yeast.
Palate: Slightly creamy with yeast, salinity and red apple skins. It has a lovely long finish with salted almonds pvery prevalent.
Yet again another fabulous fino from a new bodega to us.
We are hoping that we can get to do a tour at some point in the not too distant future.
