This is a reserve barrel selection from our magnificent 2022 Lopez Palomino: this barrel stood out from the beginning as the clearest, brightest, strongest of the wines. It is fresh and pungent, slightly fragrant of cut grass and herbs, not at all sherry-like. It is stony and severe, more like Chablis from another, cooler era. It has all of this in common with our regular wine from Lopez; it just has it in a higher and purer degree.
We have made just 120 bottles of this special wine. I am glad that we have enough to include in the Twelve Jewels of the 2022 vintage selection. You may purchase it here or as part of that collection.
