Grupo José Estevez, producers of acclaimed Sherry brand Valdespino, holds vineyard land classified as a “Grande Pago d’España”, a status which is conferred on exceptional plots for single vineyard wines across Spain. For the past five years, they have worked tirelessly in their Macharnudo vineyards to identify the perfect plot of vines to make a still wine exclusively from Palomino grapes.
Ojo de Gallo has a pale yellow straw colour. It has ripe peach and delicate citrus aromas with a lovely steely character. On the palate, there is a combination of smooth buttery and creamy texture, a mineral character along with the citrus background, and an elegant, appealing, slightly bitter after taste. This is an extremely elegant and unique wine which shows the finesse and complex potential of the Palomino grape grown on Albariza soil.
