Warm, sunny days have been teasing us here in the Pacific Northwest so it’s the perfect time to test out white wines. I was pursuing the white wine at our local grocery and saw a bottle of Palomino Fino, which I’d not tried before.
Winery: Antonio Barbadillo
Location: Cadiz, Andalucia, Spain
Color: light yellow
Aroma: apples, grapefruit
Taste: minerally, short finish, with a pleasant tingle on the tip of the tongue
This wine is a dry, pleasant, slightly salty wine made from palomino grapes, which are used in the production of sherry in this area. I found it fun to drink, with no sweetness nor oak. It’ll be a fun summer aperitif.
Now if I could only get to Andalucia to try it in person…
