PREPARATION AND AGING
Soil: Albariza type, with great capacity for absorbing water and a predominantly limestone composition, a type of soil that favors good root penetration to obtain the most diverse substrates, which are later transmitted to the wine.
Climate: Temperate climate, hot in summer and with a notable influence from the nearby Atlantic Ocean, both by the west winds in summer, and by the frequent morning dews, which are a moderate but continuous supply of water for the plant.
Elaboration: Palomino Fino grapes are harvested by hand and collected in small boxes to avoid damage to the clusters. Then they go through a gentle pressing, followed by fermentation at a controlled temperature of 24ºC. Once alcoholic 11-12º are reached, it is topped with liquor until it reaches 20º of alcohol. Once fortified, the fortified wine is transferred to 500-liter American oak casks, where it is aged through the unique soleras system. The special microclimate of El Puerto de Santa María, where our winery is located, favors oxidative aging in a gentle way, giving this wine its wonderful personality.
View: The Osborne Bailén has a nice bright amber color with green reflections.
Nose: Intense aromas of vanilla and hazelnuts typical of its aging.
Mouth: Very elegant and complex, it shows notes of sweet vanilla, roasted coffee and cedar wood. Dry and persistent.
Pairing: Accompanies cured cheeses such as Manchego, Ideazábal or Parmesan. It is also ideal with meat stews, game or even grilled tuna. Great on its own as an aperitif.
Serving temperature: 12-16ºC
