Jerez & el misterio del Palo Cortado

In the nearby areas of Jerez de la Frontera there are ideal climate conditions for grapes (the palomino kind) grows splendidly, even if they basically grow on rocks. From that you get Spain’s most distinctive wine, and the one with a larger presence in the world’s popular culture: sherry. Yet, obviously, this fame could not have been achieved merely because of geography and biology: it was also necessary a huge dedication by people who worked on wine production for centuries, as well as a whole culture associated to the grape harvest that includes its historic and fluctuating connection with England, the fascinating architecture of its cellars, and its long time partnering with flamenco music. It’s a both rich and heavy inheritance that seems to come into an unsalvageable conflict when searching for a new path within today’s consumption and marketing trends. A simple example is the ineffable mystique of the “palo cortado” variety, a wine that, according to the legend, cannot be tried for: it just happens. RA
