Albariza soil is unique and exceptional, composed of diatoms, microscopic marine algae fossilised over millions of years.
SOTOVELO, a groundbreaking white wine from Palomino grapes, from Balbaina in El Puerto de Santa Maria, Jerez.
Using the unique process traditionally used to create fino, we develop our wine for 8 months beneath a veil of flor (a light covering of yeasts) in wooden barrels, acquiring notes of almond and toasted bread along with saline and mineral undertones combined with the citrus, green apple and nectarine fruitiness of the Palomino variety.
A complex wine blends freshness with an umami/savory/saline profile and a dry finish thanks to its low sugar content (<1g/L); ideal with all Mediterranean cuisine, olives, matured cheeses, cured ham and seafood, or on its own.
100% Palomino and aged for 5 years in bota, this is an invigorating white wine with a subtle, floral, mineral nose. Great intensity with sea breeze salinity running through an impressive structure, there is tension on the palate. The yeasty, baked bread flavours are in balance with apricots and golden apples. In the mouth the texture is silky and round, with an extremely long and clean finish. A unique style of Manzanilla to be served chilled with food or as an aperitif.
Brilliant mahogany lights up the glass and prepares you for an alluring toasted hazelnut aroma. Made from 100% Palomino aged for 12 years in bota, this is a very silky and fine Oloroso with a luscious feel in the mouth. Orange peel gives a pronounced freshness to complement a backbone of brooding, nutty flavours. On the end the solera comes to the fore leaving a vanilla and cigar box finish which is persistent and long. The perfect accompaniment with game or after a meal with or without cheese.
