Description

Grupo José Estevez, producers of acclaimed sherry brand Valdespino, holds vineyard land classified as a “Grande Pago d’España”, a status which is conferred on exceptional plots for single vineyard wines across Spain. For the past five years, they have worked tirelessly in their Macharnudo vineyards to identify the perfect plot of vines to make a still wine exclusively from Palomino grapes. The Ojo de Gallo is based on fruit from the Macharnudo Alto. This vineyard is situated in the highest point of the Sherry D.O. at 135 metres above sea level with excellent, southeast exposure and the unique limestone ‘albariza’ soil which absorbs moisture and limits evaporation in this region’s hot climate. The conditions are perfect for growing Palomino and results in wines with outstanding freshness, personality and great mineral character.

Tasting Note

It has ripe peach and delicate citrus aromas with a lovely steely character. On the palate there is a combination of smooth oiliness, a mineral character along with the citrus background and an elegant, appealing, slightly bitter bite after taste. An extremely elegant and unique wine which shows the finesse and complex potential of the Palomino grape grown on Albariza soil.
