VARIETAL NOTES : Palomino Fino 

VINEYARD : The grapes come from Macharnudo Alto and vines in excess of 25 years old 

ORIENTATION : The vineyard faces south east with an inclination of 10 degrees and at an altitude of 135 meters high. 

SOIL : Albariza or a white chalky soil. When wet it sheds water to deeper soils and as it dries it "clods" creating a protective layer that slows the evaporation of water from below. 

VINIFICATION : The wine is fermented naturally in very old oak barrels. They remain in this "sobretabla" for 1 year fermenting to about 12% alcohol and forming the flor. The wine is then removed from the lees and fortified to 15% and introduced to the first "criadera" or level of the Inocente solera. 

AGING : The wine undergoes biological aging under the veil of flor for over 10 years. There are 10 criaderas + the Solera whereas most Finos on the market only have 3 years aging.

Yellow straw-colored, medium intensity. Pungent, delicate and complex with almond notes and autolysis. Soft entry on the palate with a round smooth feel and structure; lots of volume and character as well as a fresh and saline taste.

Wine SpectatorHigh-pitched, featuring talc, chamomile, chalk and jicama notes, followed by a pure, stone-tinged finish. Very graceful, lacy and long. Drink now.
