Overview

Raya la Barajuela is the last Palomino picked at the end of September from the vineyards of the famed El Corregidor estate. Unlike its siblings (Palma Cortada and Cortado), it isn’t dried before pressing but allowed to dry naturally on the vine. With a potential alcohol well over 17%, you’d be tempted to classify this as a sweet wine. Yet, when the natural fermentation ceases, the remaining sugar is largely consumed after two years of biological aging in old sherry casks. What little residual sugar is left is firmly kept in check by the wine’s acidity.
