CORTA y RASPA Palomino do Pasto de Parcela ‘Viña de Las Cuarenta’ 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 Rafael J. Rodriguez Jimenez in Pago Anina (Jerez) where he has many parcels.
Lovely, open and round, it’s a wine with a slow, deliberate reveal; savoury depth and spread easing out to an acid trickle finish. Textured with a patina of fine grains over a steely base, it’s sure, sleek, and deftly organised. There’s umami chalky richness, orange blossom and spice through typical Palomino cereal. A dry honey perfume of delicate white pollen lingers.
