WONDERHORSE OLD VINE PALOMINO
An often innocuous, neutral cultivar, when it’s vines are allowed to get really old it’s yields drop to a clutch of grapes you can get the personality of this wine, vine and place. It’s quiet on the nose and palate but persistent with notes of 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, almond nuttiness and the residual salinity of an old dry grown vineyard. Drink it slowly to take all this in.
