Named after the Atlantic western winds, Poniente is a rare Fino styled sherry. The 100% Palomino Fino grapes hail from the following organically farmed estate vineyards within Pago Añina of Jeréz Superior: San Cristóbal, San José y El Aljibe. The region is known for its extreme sun exposure as well as sea-air influence. The wines are made in select soleras averaging over 8 years old. The first saca (bottling) of this wine occurred after 2 years resting in the winery before bottling and release. This wine was neither clarified nor stabilized, only lightly filtered before bottling.
Aromatically this fino lifts from the glass with the initial scent of sea air, along with golden raisins, almond skins, apricots and hay. On the palate the wine is bone dry, with rich and salty nuances and a beautifully full body.
