El Muelle is named for a pier which used to facilitate fishing boats in Sanlúcar. It is a structured, intense white selected from the finest fruit of Carrascal, part of which is given a brief asoleo. Most of the fruit is fermented in stainless, with 20% being dried for 6-8 hours and then fermented in vats of cherry wood and aged a month under light flor. TSA

.. a new unfortified white from Palomino from the Corregidor estate. The fermentation was 75% in stainless steel and 25% in sherry casks, and the part of the wine in casks aged for six months under a veil of flor yeast. I was really impressed and found an attractive nose with notes of moss and river stones completely unusual for a Palomino. 2017 was a very dry year, and the harvest was extremely early, especially to be able to keep some acidity in the wines. You might think I'm crazy, but in a way, it made me think of a Ribeiro. The palate is very mineral, with a stony sensation. It finishes dry, long and very tasty. Very surprising!
