This is a white wine made from sherry grapes (100% Palomino). It has a lovely grapey texture and shows subtle nuttiness (flor) and chalkiness with some baked apple but has a dry, saline and mouth-watering finish.
Tapas dishes are a must, think anchovies and croquette.
Varietal / Blend: Palomino
Decant: Not necessary
Farming Practices: Practising Organics
Ramiro Ibañez is passionate about the albariza soil and recovery of the traditional local grape varieties, many of these almost lost and also no longer permitted by the governing Consejo regulations. He makes wines that demonstrate the personality and terroir of each vineyard and grape variety without letting too much flor obscure it.
He was a founding member of a group of like-minded local producers who wanted to experiment with old varieties and winemaking techniques, making unfortified Sherry and give more importance to the grapes and vineyard.
All the wines are made in very small quantities and the current range is from the UBE project which is old vine Palomino from different clones fermented in old Manzanilla butt without flor.
