Palo Blanco this cuvee is sourced from a 1.5ha vineyard of centenarian cordon trenzado (braided vines) Listan Blanco at 600m elevation, and is named for the area where it’s planted. The grapes are hand-harvested, pressed full cluster into large concrete tank off the skins and fermented without malolactic occurring, then raised in two Friulian 2500L oval foudres for 10 months. Bottling is without fining or filtration. Palo Blanco is a volcanic island wine: high-toned, linear, saline and electric.
This oceanic white also contains 25% grapes that were macerated on their skins, giving it a bit more depth and complexity than other coastal whites. Further adding to its complexity, the vines are around 70-100 years old.
