El Pinto Palomino - La Parilla - Andalucia


El Pinto Palomino: here the Palomino grapes (the grape traditionally used to make Sherry) is vinified dry and is neither fortified nor oxidative. The wine is bright, fresh, bone-dry with a lovely richness mid-palate, the scent of the sea is present right through to its saline finish.

Manually harvested, spontaneously fermentation, with indigenous yeast in stainless steel. Controlled ferment at cold temperature of 8°C - No filtration, no fining, only a small amount of Sulphur was added before bottling.

The wine is part of 'Terroirs Project', a cooperation between local vignerons and Les Caves de Pyrene. The aim is to produce honest wines from plots farmed organically, with minimal intervention in the winery and coming out to the public at democratic prices.

Made up of old olive trees, vineyards (17ha), pasture (where Iberico pigs roam free) and other crops. Owned by the Rebuelta González brothers they built the winery in an old olive mill, within their charming ranch house which dates from 1881.
