CORTA y RASPA Palomino Do Pasto De Parcela ‘La Charanga’ 2018
Four producers in the Marco de Jerez region of Spain have teamed up together to create a very cool new label.
Each wine uses the same variety, Palomino, is spontaneously fermented, minimal treatment and aged in barrels for 12 months without ullage and not under flor. So what sets these wines apart from one another? The Mayeto (the local word for a small producer) parcel from which they originate.
Vina de Las Cuarenta comes from 4th generation grower Atonio Bernal Ortega in Pago Maina where he has 35 year old vines.
Smoked gooseberry, fresh honey dew, and pollen-saturated blossoms. A hit of deep, funky chalk; layered with Atlantic freshness. After a year, a bit more blue scorch has filled the signature praline (orange amargo) touch. The palate’s fine tannin-brass-steel laminations are honey-spiced. It’s round, deep and reaches nicely to the back to a spice-bay-bitter fullstop. Character, grace and charm.
