ūüćᬆ Palomino Fino

Region: Bierzo DO, Spain

Farming/Vinification: Organic farming practices. Normally working in Bierzo and Alella, Mario Rovira has slipped down to Sanl√ļcar de Barrameda for a special project with only white grapes from Jerez. Teaming up with Bodegas Delgado Zuleta in Jerez, Mario created an experimental project of four botas of Palomino Fino, which¬†is most widely known as the primary grape used for Sherry production. ¬†Rovira sourced the fruit from the chalky albariza soils of the Pago de Balbaina, to better understand how to craft unfortified wines that develop under a layer of flor. The¬†result of this experiment is a Vino de la Tierra Cadiz called Tosca Cerrada. All 100% Palomino Fino grapes are fermented by indigenous yeasts anew¬†aged for 9-12 months in either concrete, tank or French oak barrels ranging in size from 228L-300L. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, non-fortified, and with low SO2.¬†
