Sábalo, Bodegas Barbadillo (75cl)
Bodegas Barbadillo pride themselves on their connection with their land and recently they have started making organic wines. The first of these is Sábalo, named after a fish which swims in the Guadalquivir estuaries to spawn. This unfortified Palomino Fino has ripe apple aromas, a silky richness and mineral notes.
Region: Jerez, Spain
Tasting notes/pairing options: Ripe apple aromas, full bodied and silky with a richness and mineral notes.
Certified organic, suitable for vegans and vegetarians
Sábalo is made from Palomino fino grapes grown in two sites on chalky albariza soils. Their ripening is moderated by the influence of the Atlantic and the River Gualdaquivir, vines are pruned in the classic Jerez vara y pulgar method. The first site, close to Sanlúcar, has 35-year-old vines and has been certified organic since 2003. The second is on the crest of a hill overlooking the Guadalquivir wetlands towards Sanlúcar and Trebujena. Vines are 25 years old and the vineyard has been certified since 2008.
We are a close family business and are currently in our second generation. We are based on our natural lavender farm, Yorkshire Lavender in the North Yorkshire countryside.
So why wine?
With a member of our staff, Timi, a trained sommelier; it seemed crazy to let that enthusiasm and experience go to waste.
Wine starts in the ground! Just like lavender the correct soil, conditions and care are vital to grow excellent grapes to make exceptional wine.
Our commitment to our natural lavender farm along with Timi’s enthusiastic expertise has led to a developing interest in natural, organic, bio-dynamic wines.
