Vineyard and elaboration
These palomino grapes are produced in the Cerro de Leyes plot, within the Santa Lucía estate. It has an albariza soil, which makes the region's scarce but intense rainfall water be stored in the underground, at several metres deep. The winemaking process was carried out in different steps, after harvesting the grapes both manually and mechanised, and 'asoleo' in the vineyard. The wine rested on its fine lees for a few months, after that it was stored in vats and finally in stainless steel tanks.
Barbadillo history dates back to 1821, when they started to make Manzanilla, but it was not until 1954 when the company was created. From its begginings, Barbadillo has not stopped evolving, always looking for a way to make surprising and long-lasting wines.
It has 500 hectares of owned vineyards, 17 ageing wineries i Sanlúcar de Brrameda and a vinification plant, so it is one of the biggest and more important wineries in the Sherry Triangle.
