- Barbadillo Fino Sherry (A48)
- Barbadilloâ€™s Finos are more Manzanilla-like in style, but are aged in Bodegas with less exposure to the cooling sea breezes. The flor in the barrels grows vigorously in these cellars so the wine is a little more nutty and toasty than the more appley and yeasty Manzanillas of Sanlucar

MINIMAL INTERVENTION BETWEEN VINE AND WINE
We make wines we feel are honest and representative rather than a copy of a wine from somewhere else. Wine that reflects the true character of the Blind River terroir of the vineyard where we make our home. Wine that adds texture and balance to the intensity of the world famous Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs.
Our belief is that winemaking starts in the vineyard. Fruit carefully tended and managed using sensible, sustainable methods requires minimal intervention from the winemaker for our terroir to show its potential. The result is wines of quality with unique flavour profiles - wines with a freshness and minerality not found elsewhere in Marlborough.
- Unculin Mencia (A90)

Abajo, and his father is a native of CorullÃ³n. Together, Jose and Juliaâ€™s families have owned vineyards in Bierzo for generations, providing wines that would become the backbone of other famous blends, but never bottling for
themselves. Like many families who left the countryside for better opportunities in the cities, Jose spent his formative years in Barcelona where he worked in restaurants and gained valuable perspective and experience with fine wine. In 2009 Jose returned to recuperate his family's vineyard holdings in the tiny village of Valtuille de Abajo, which is also home to his friend and former mentor RaÃºl PÃ©rez, where Jose made wine following enology school.
