Corta y Raspa Palomino de Pasto parcela la Charanga 2018
Low acid but very ‘sapid’, the freshness here results from Maina having
the highest concentration of diatoms in any Pago. Lively-almost-crunchy thanks
to the ‘limey’ chalk, it’s a wine of delicate power.
chalky funk, spice and brassy honey lift out of a wheat and white tannin base.
Then an array of amargo touches: bitter herb, melon casing, pickled ginger,
sliced lemon skin and a grapefruit stretch. It’s the most structured of the
Mayetos wines: beautifully defined with an easy release into a fine
pollen-floral memory and a signature touch of seville orange nougat.
