Wine Notes

Grape Variety: Palomino

Palomino is a white wine grape from Andalucia, southwestern Spain. It is the grape variety used to make Sherry, and occupies almost 95 percent of the total vineyard area in Jerez. The variety has also made its way 800 miles (1300km) southwest of Jerez, to the Canary Islands, where it is known as Listan Blanco.

There are two distinct sub-varieties of Palomino: Palomino Fino and Palomino Basto (also known as Palomino de Jerez). The former is the more highly regarded of the two.

The finest examples of Palomino-based wines come from Sanlucar de Barrameda, where it was traditionally known as Manzanilla de Sanlucar and gave its name to the Manzanilla style of Sherry.
