The Barbadillo Sábalo is made from Palomino fino grapes grown in two sites on chalky albariza soils. Their ripening is moderated by the influence of the Atlantic and the River Gualdaquivir. The first site, close to Sanlúcar, has 35-year-old vines and has been certified organic since 2003. The second is on the crest of a hill overlooking the Guadalquivir wetlands towards Sanlúcar and Trebujena. Vines are 25 years old and the vineyard has been certified since 2008. Grapes are handpicked and cool fermented with natural yeasts in small temperature-controlled steel tanks. The wine is aged on lees for four months before bottling in January.
Ripe apple aromas, full bodied and silky with a richness and mineral notes.
