ABOUT THE WINE

This wine comes from the ‘Palomino’ variety, obtained by gentle pressure and subjected to complete fermentation. It’s 15% alcohol is obtained by biological aging that must be undertaken in wineries located in Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Being a product called “pasada en rama” combines two attributes: freshness of a product and a finesse and elegance of its pre-oxidative balance. The very special microclimate of our winery located at the mouth of the Guadalquivir River encourages the development of the ‘velo de flor’ that provides its peculiar organoleptic characteristics. This biological aging continues for an average period of ten years in American oak barrels using the traditional ‘criaderas’ and solera system.


Pale yellow colour. Intense smell, frank old wood notes, a touch of faded flowers and hints of nuts. Delicate hints of biological aging. In mouth fleshy, very dry, with enough weight, excellent acidity with a slightly bitter finish.
