Palomino as we all well know was used mainly to produce sherry and sherry-styled wines in South Africa. Very few of these vineyards remain and this Brakkuil vineyard is one of them. A rare bottling of this varietal shows the vineyard and varietal very well. The wine is pure, delicate, vinous, and savoury/salty to the taste.
"Called "salt of the earth" because it comes from the same coastal, sand and limestone vineyard as Eben Sadie's Skerpioen, this is arguably the southern hemisphere's greatest Palomino. Light and pithy, with sea salt and citrus flavours, wonderful purity and tension and a long, tapering finish. Drink 2022-27. 94 points." (Tim Atkin MW, South Africa Report 2021)
