Palomino Fino, Barbadillo, Patinegro 2021


Tasting Note

Barbadillo in Singular is a small part of Bodegas Barbadillo, the renowned Sherry producer whose name is inseparable from its home in Sanlúcar de Barrameda. For 200 years the winery has stood at the mouth of the Guadalquivir River, where its biological process came into being with the first Manzanilla it produced in its cellars. The "Singular" is a new project from Barbadillo show casing specific organic sites to showcase the micro-climate and help preserve the surraiounding ecosystems. This is named after the Patinegro, or Kentish plover, a bird whose population is in decline due to human encroachment into their coastal habitats.

Gloriously intense colour. A bone-dry organic white wine with a rich nose of flor, dry grass and fresh brine characters. Incredibly complex, powerful in the mouth, with yeasty, bread flavours, saline and vibrant ozone notes on the finish. Uniquely brilliant.

Jancis Robinson 17 Points

"Palomino from two certified-organic vineyards: Balbaína and Burujena. Fermented and aged in sherry botas, but without the influence of flor as the botas are always kept full. In cask for 10 months. Less perfumed than Sábalo. But more structured and more serious. Lime marmalade flavours! Very long. 17 Points, November 2023."
