Named after the cool, humid, westerly Atlantic winds that blow across the region of Jerez. El Aljibe is located within the Pago de Anina, one of the designated pagos of Jerez Superior.
"The golden colored and pungent NV Fino was bottled for the first time in 2018 (marked with a neck label that says "Saca 1/18"), and the idea is to do one single bottling per year. The wine comes from three vineyards in Pago Anina on albariza soils, so it's a single-vineyard Fino, fermented in bota like yesteryear and organized in four criaderas and one solera that averages over eight years of age. The younger criadera is topped up with the wine from their own vineyards. The winery where the wine matures is halfway between Jerez and Sanlucar, so it combines the active flor from the cooler location and the volume of a wine that is only bottled and refreshed once per year. It feels old, complex, developed and with volume, with classical aromas and a bone-dry palate. Superb! It was bottled en rama into 2,666 bottles that were filled in November 2018." 94 points Luis Gutierrez The Wine Advocate
