Production and Aging
These are wines made from extremely fine palomino musts, initially headed at 15% vol. and identified with a "stick" or oblique stripe. At the end of the sobretabla phase, the confirmation by the tasters of the existence of certain very specific characteristics in some of the boots in which the flower veil has been maintained , will determine their classification as potential Cut Clubs (illustrated on boots with a horizontal stripe cutting the original "club").
Wine once again leads above 17% vol. thus leading to a oxidative aging process.
