Made by a serious sherry dynasty, Barbadillo, this wine is more tangy and figgy than the Waitrose number, right, and has enough perky acidity under its flowing honey, date and caramel notes to slice rapier-like through a Sticky Toffee Pudding - which is, I am sure you'll agree, the king of all puddings!
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, or Upper Jerez. 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.
Jerez Superior is the celebrated land 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.
