This still Palomino comes from an area in the Macharnudo pago known as ‘Alto’. At 135 metres it benefits from both the Poniente wind and good sun exposure. The grapes were hand harvested at night. 75% were destemmed and lightly crushed to obtain 60% of the Yema (highest quality must). The must was then transferred to used sherry casks for fermentation. The wine was left on its fine lees and was then racked off in January but remained in cask until July followed by two months in stainless steel. White stone-fruit character supported by soft brioche notes and bruised apple.
