let the right one in · just my fascination running away with me · an elephant never forgets
De la Riva is a renowned historic Jerez brand that was rescued by young winemakers Ramiro Ibáñez and Willy Pérez in 2017. This oloroso comes from a solera at Cuvillo & Cía. In the 1980s the bodega fell on hard times and sent this solera as payment to an architect in Jerez, who left it untouched for 40 years. When De La Riva discovered it, the volume had reduced due to evaporation, making for an incredibly intense and complex wine. These ‘forgotten’wines are on average 70-80 years old and are rare treasures, available in very limited quantities.
