Corta y Raspa Palomino de Pasto parcela los Esbaratos 2018
Made, as all Corta y Raspa wines are, in very old bota. Fermented, taken off
lees in December and aged in filled bota for 12 months without velo de flor.
This 65yo vineyard of lustrillos and lentejuelas is mainly planted to the old
local cultivar Palomino de Jerez.
A wine of good volume with nice stretch, saline freshness and a sense of
Miraflores’ open fluidity. Good skin concentration plays out as pickled
cumquats, with old marigolds, a lick of chalk and smoky blue steel. In the run
home, it turns deftly sour, running out on a lovely bitter herb tisane. The
gentle release approximates a smile.
