On Monday I was invited to the presentation of this year’s bottling of La Goya XL Manzanilla en Rama by Bodegas Delgado Zuleta, held at the fabulous Terraza La Fortissima. At first I thought it was going to be a vertical tasting when I saw other versions of La Goya in the ice bucket but when I asked José Antonio Sánchez (technical director and winemaker at DZ) he said it was actually going to be an L-shaped tasting, with different samplings of La Goya from two criaderas and two soleras (criaderas go up and down, soleras sideways). Cool.

Afterwards there we were treated to snacks on the rooftop with other wines from the Delgado Zuleta range: Goyesco Ámbar, Gallipato, Tarabilla and Barbiana en Rama. It was a perfect sunny day and fun to catch up with colleagues and friends.
