            [Notes2] => ‘Sabalo’ is made 100% from organic Palomino grape. It was crafted by Barbadillo’s winemaker 
Montse Molina whose many years of experience working with the Palomino grape have ensured 
the optimum quality of this wine.
The terroir influence here is considerable as all the grapes are grown on the famous chalky 
‘Albariza’ soil of the region. The wine’s great finesse and delicate flavours are a reflection of both 
this soil and the vineyards’ proximity to the sea and the River Guadalquivir.
The grapes come exclusively from two certified organic vineyards and were the first in the region 
to convert to organic production. The first is near Sanlucar with 35 year old vines and has been 
certified organic since 2003.
The second vineyard is on the crest of a hill overlooking the Guadalquivir wetlands towards 
Sanlucar and Trebujena. The vineyard is 25 years old and has been certified organic since 2008.
With grapes from these two vineyards we have blended the influence of the sea with that of the river.

About this product +

Producer >

Bodegas Barbadillo was founded in 1821 in Sanlúcar de Barrameda. For two hundred years the family has been devoted to making quality wine with respect for tradition and a passion for innovation. This enduring commitment has earned Barbadillo its place as the foremost specialist in all sherry styles. With their origins in Sanlúcar de Barrameda, we are excited to introduce their range of exceptional Manzanillas. Their innovative approach is the future of this region, evolving and creating new styles to suit every palate. In their seventh generation of wine production the family are still looking at the future.

Viticulture >

‘Sabalo’ is made 100% from organic Palomino grape. It was crafted by Barbadillo’s winemaker Montse Molina whose many years of experience working with the Palomino grape have ensured the optimum quality of this wine. The terroir influence here is considerable as all the grapes are grown on the famous chalky ‘Albariza’ soil of the region. The wine’s great finesse and delicate flavours are a reflection of both this soil and the vineyards’ proximity to the sea and the River Guadalquivir. The grapes come exclusively from two certified organic vineyards and were the first in the region to convert to organic production. The first is near Sanlucar with 35 year old vines and has been certified organic since 2003. The second vineyard is on the crest of a hill overlooking the Guadalquivir wetlands towards Sanlucar and Trebujena. The vineyard is 25 years old and has been certified organic since 2008. With grapes from these two vineyards we have blended the influence of the sea with that of the river.
