Winemaking - The 2017 Elixir is a new dry blend of Palomino and Moscatel grapes. The Palomino comes from old vines in Viña La Platera from Pago Miraflores in Sanlúcar on classical albariza soils, and the Moscatel comes from Viña Camino del Puerto in the Pago Abulagar in the village of Chipiona on sandy soils with some clay. There is 60% Palomino and 40% Moscatel, and it fermented in Bordeaux oak barrels with indigenous yeasts.
What it tastes like - It’s perfumed, clean, expressive and showy, with notes of orange blossom, white pepper and a salty twist. The palate is dry, serious, balanced, with focused flavors and a dry finish with a bitter twist. It’s very tasty, long and clean. 4,000 bottles were filled in May 2018.
