Palomino grapes were fermented in stainless steel and then classified by Montserrat Molina, the winemaker. The wine undergoes a biological process of ageing under flor in oak butts which gives the sherry its specific characteristics and is typical of the Jerez region. A period of oxidative ageing then follows the flor ageing which imparts extra flavours and character. Ageing takes place for 4 years in the historical cathedral-like cellars using the traditional Solera system.
Barbadillo is a 100% Spanish family owned business based in Sanlucar de Barrameda since 1821, that effortlessly brings together tradition and modernity. Barbadillo owns 500 hectares of vineyards spread over two estates, Gibalbín and Santa Lucía, both of which are located in the area known as Jerez Superior. The former has an extensive winemaking plant fully equipped with state-of-the-art technology and Barbadillo’s numerous wine cellars are strategically distributed over the outstanding area of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, surrounding the medieval castle of Santiago.
The Jerez Superior are the celebrated lands of albariza, a porous, chalky soil characterised by its pale colour that is particularly well suited to the cultivation of vines grown for the production of quality wines. The climate is mild with more than 3,000 hours of sun softened by the cooling influence of the Atlantic. These factors, together with a long winemaking tradition, allow for excellent ripening of the Palomino grapes and ensure a high degree of beaumé (level of sweetness) and moderate acidity.
This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 2 years
