Barbadillo Sabalo

Barbadillo Sabalo


  • Wine from the Land of Cádiz. Sábalo is a wine that was born making its way in the albariza land of Sanlúcar, which leaves the influence of the sea, the marshes and the Guadalquivir marked in its DNA.
  • The average age of the vines is 30 years.
  • 100% Organic Palomino Fina vineyards.
  • “Sábalo is the fruit of our wine knowledge, the shared work from the farmers to the know-how of our winemaker.”

Varietal Composition: 100% Palomino Fina

Elaboration: The grapes come from three organic vineyards that are carefully cared for in the historic Balbaína, Añina and Burujena estates. Manually harvested, one of the vineyards is pruned with a double cordon and the other with “Vara y pulgar”. Slow fermentation processes. Temperature controlled at 17° C in small capacity stainless steel. Spontaneous fermentation. Aging with lees for four months.

Tasting Notes: Clean and bright. The nose has complex nuances of ripe apple and peach, spicy notes. The mouth is broad, creamy palate, light notes of ripe fruit and a soft saline nuance.




Founded in 1821, Barbadillo is without question Sanlucar de Barrameda’s most iconic producer of Sherry.  The thing we appreciate most about Barbadillo is that they’ve remained staunchly committed to tradition in the face of continued growth – Base wines are all still fermented in house through the company’s network of sixteen historic bodegas and the variety and depth of their soleras is breathtaking.  With the Sherry category seeing more excitement than ever before in history, Barbadillo is delivering big time, with a panoply of single vineyard and heirloom releases. From their groundbreaking ‘Solear’ Manzanilla to their almost impossible to procure ‘Reliquia’ series and everything in between, tasting through the Barbadillo lineup is an inspirational and energizing experience.
