Palomino Fino Grape

Yesterday we wrote up a tasting of a Palomino Fino/Reisling wine from Jerez (Tierra Blanca 2018). It is unusual to find a wine from this grape as the majority are used for Sherry.

When you read up on the grape you understand why. It has a reputation for being low on acidity and taste. A bit dull really. A non starter for general wine but ideal for sherry fortification.

You have to wonder why yesterday’s bodega bothered, given they already had a well reputed aged sherry vinegar. In fact their own website states that their colleagues thought they were mad.

Oh well here’s’s take on the Palomino Fino grape variety. Click on the image to open the article.
