Wonder Horse Palomino

The vines, which produced the Palomino grapes for this wine were planted in 1977, so it can be argued that they’re entering their peak years, as the yields are starting to decrease, resulting in the grapes having a higher concentration of flavour, sugar and acid.

You may recognise the name Palomino, when you’ve seen it written on Sherry bottles. That’s because it’s used widely in Spain in Sherry production. However, it can be found in South Africa, where it produces beautiful and elegant, aromatic white wines.

This particular Palomino, from Piekenierskloof, SA is wonderful. It’s quiet on the nose and palate but persistent with notes almond skin, fennel and even a little jasmine, all this follows on the palate with a bright natural acidity and a teasing top note of grassy fennel and almond nuttiness. Drink it slowly in order to appreciate it’s delightful qualities.
