Barbadillo is a blend of Verdejo from Rueda and Palomino from Sanlucar (Jerez Superior).The Palomino was 100% hand harvested during the first week of September in Jerez. The Verdejo was hand and machine picked during the final week of September in Rueda. The harvest conditions were excellent and 2007 was a fantastic year for aromatic whites in Andalucia and Rueda.The fruit was fermented in stainless steel and saw some lees contact and light filtration.
