Started by two young entrepreneurs with a passion for wine, Alejandro Narváez and Rocío Áspera began Bodegas Forlong in 2009, with a very clear focus on quality, not quantity.  They’re the only certified organic vineyard and wine producer in the region of El Puerto de Santa Maria.  This slightly peachy-pink wine is full-bodied, yet fragrant, with a crisp minerality, palpable saltiness, and relatively low acid.  It tastes like lime and river rocks up front and ends on a Fino Sherry note (because it is made from the same grapes as Sherry), so you get the savory salty, figgy nuttiness without the extra alcohol (because Sherry is fortified).  Makes an incredible aperitif, chilled with a bowl of salty nuts.
