Tosca Cerrada

Tosca Cerrada Palomino Fino En Rama 2016


no added sulfur

Country: Spain

Region: Bierzo

Type: White Wine

Grape: Palomino

With a few vintages of his Palomino Fino-based blend from Bierzo under his belt, the winemaker Mario Rovira set out to better understand the historical vinification of this Andalusian grape variety. Teaming up with Bodegas Delgado Zuleta in Jerez, Mario created an experimental project of four botas of Palomino Fino, sourced from the albariza soils of the Pago de Balbaina, to craft unfortified wines that develop under a layer of flor. The result of this experiment is a Vino de la Tierra Cadiz called Tosca Cerrada.

Hand harvested. Spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel. Aged 7 months in former Manzanilla botas, with 4 of those months under flor. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, with minimal added sulfur. 

This wine has array of floral aromas, nuts, crushed herbs and minerality, all delicately and finely composed. Fine tannins and lively acidity.
