Amigo Imaginario - 2019
Bodega de Forlong is the classic utopian story of love at first sight: love of the land, of the return to traditions, love of the natural elements and an overall profound admiration and respect for the environment. Alejandro Naváerez y Rocío Áspera are natives of El Puerto de Santa Maria, old classmates who became friends turned lovers turned business partners and dreamcatchers. An unbelievably gastronomic wine – this “orange” wine that tastes like the finest of Oloroso but has the body and electricity of a vibrant white wine. Crystalline amber in color and insanely aromatic, the unctuous notes of tropical fruits and hazelnuts are chiseled on the palate by the precision of aged Palomino. There is the succulence of dried apricots and the hint of cocoa you love in your Generoso, but with a poise and precision that make it a delight for your gastronomic by the glass program.
