Alexander Jules is a label of barrel selected sherries chosen by winemaker and Sherry expert Alex Russan. He searches the Sherry Triangle for exceptional soleras of unique composition or circumstance, marking with chalk those he feels to be the most complex and elegant, or that reflect the profile he would like to bring out from within that solera. All bottlings are en rama, being only gently filtered or entirely unfiltered, with no other treatments or additions, including sulfur.
Fino 9/65 represents a selection of flor yeasts as much as barrel selection. The wine is a selection of barrels dominated by one of two different strains of flor yeast: Saccharmoyces. montulienses, and S. beticus. Nine to ten years average age, from two of the most revered vineyards in Jerez, Pago Macharnudo and Pago Añina. A textured, mature, saline Fino.
