Sharp, flinty Listán Blanco (aka Palomino, the grape most Sherry is made from) from approximately 100-year-old ungrafted vines from several small plots on the slopes of the Teide, a dormant 12,000 ft high volcano on the island of Tenerife. Fermented in concrete, partially skin-macerated, partially aged under flor (like Sherry). Elegant, complex. Subtly smoky, with nutty, yeasty aromas. Saline, crushed stone, minerals and some notes of citrus (grapefruit) 🌋🔥🔥🔥

Nice Palomino wine from the Canary Islands. Very mild in flavor, but a good choice when you want a white wine that is less noticeable and inoffensive.

Light amber color, medium bodied with some tannin structure. Herbal aromas hit the nose first, then fruit flavors of white peach and apricot with a saline finish. Developed dried citrus peel flavors as it got closer to room temperature. Would be interesting to see how it ages.
