The Francis Ford Coppola of Spain?
Early this week the San Clodio Produccions A Modino 2010 is coming into Zachys warehouse with a pristine track record and cult following worthy of a movie star. This highly aromatic, luxuriously weighted Spanish white is the passion project of Spanish filmmaker Jose Louis Cuerda, who apparently not only has an eye for beauty, but a palate to match.
You could consider him Spain's Francis Ford Coppola - a fellow filmmaker turned winemaker. Cuerda's work in the vineyard is a labor of love and the opportunity for Cuerda to capture a place in time much like his acclaimed films. If wine could be eligible for a Goya (Spain's equivalent of the Oscars) you could consider SanClodio a three-time winner with a streak of 91 points from Robert Parker himself:
You're going to want this thirst-quenching beauty this summer and in years to come.
All my best,
