PRODUCTION AND AGEING
Soil: Albariza, a predominantly chalky soil with a great capacity for absorbing water,it allows the roots to penetrate deeply, picking up a very diverse range of substrates that are then transmitted to the wine.
Climate: A temperate climate with hot summers and the notable influence of the Atlantic Ocean, both due to the poniente wines in the summer, as well as the frequent morning showers, providing the plant with a moderate but continuous supply of water.
Winemaking: The Palomino Fino grapes are hand-harvested and are collected in small crates to avoid damaging the bunches. Then they are gently pressed before being fermented at a controlled temperature of 24ºC. Once it reaches 11-12º alcohol, it is fortified with liqueur to 20º alcohol.Once fortified, the sherry is transferred to 500-litre American oak barrels, where it ages through a unique solera system. The special microclimate of El Puerto de Santa Maria, where our winery is situated, prints its marvellous personality on this wine through favouring slow oxidative ageing.
Appearance: Osborne Bailén is attractive shade of bright amber with green highlights.
Nose: Intense aromas of vanilla and hazelnuts added through the ageing process.
Palate: very elegant and complex, it shows notes of sweet vanilla, roasted coffee and cedarwood. Dry and long-lasting.
Pairing: It pairs well with mature cheeses such as Manchego, Idiazábal and Parmesan. It is also ideal alongside meat stews, game and even grilled tuna. Fantastic on its own as an aperitif.
