About this Wine:
Bodegas Tradición was founded in 1998 by Joaquín Rivero Valcarce, scion of one of the region’s most historically prominent wine families. Bodega CZ, J.M. Rivero was established in the early 1650s, making it one of the oldest firms on record. It’s golden age was most certainly the 19th century – in 1855, it housed over 3,000 butts and commercialized a dozen or more world-renowned brands. The bodega’s fortunes waned with those of the region, and it was finally sold in 1991 to a Cordoba-based olive oil and vinegar concern, adding it to the long list of historic firms that shuttered in the latter part of the 20th century.

Ratings & Reviews

98 Points - Wine & Spirits:
"When Joaquín Rivero restored his family’s business in 1991, he set out to revive the old techniques of winemaking in Jerez. This Oloroso is the culmination of that process. There is no modern technology in the cellar—no stainless steel, no pumps—just the casks. This is a blend of wines averaging more than 45 years of age, and the result is so profound it feels like looking straight into a soul built of salt, limestone, dried fruit and spice. While huge, it’s also extremely smooth, filling the palate, displaying all its minerality like it is bragging about the fact that it is built out of stones."

95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

93 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Almost plump, with a juicy core of orange, date, persimmon and toasted mango. The edges are dry, with bitter almond and musk accents lending contrast. The finish features an echoing iodine hint. Distinctive. Drink now. 400 cases made."
