A magical and unique wine from famed sherry house, Barbadillo.  This is still wine produced using 19th century techniques that amounts to a wine that is a cross between crisp white wine and fino sherry. 

100% Palomino from Barbadillo’s ‘Cerro de Leyes’ vineyard in the Santa Lucía pago planted in 1972. Before being pressed, the grapes are lightly sun-dried in the ‘Soleo’ process where the picked grape bunches are left  to increase the sugar concentration. Manzanilla butts are then used for a traditional cask fermentation using the natural yeasts from the vineyard. The young wine is then transferred to stainless steel and cement tanks for 18 months, under a veil of ‘flor’ before bottling with minimal fining. The result is something unique and represents a journey back in time in terms of aromas and flavours; ones that might have been more familiar in the 19th century.
