Kaesler Palomino 2013

Palomino, the principal grape variety used in Sherry production.

Here, off of 50+ year old vines from the Barossa, the Palomino has been crafted into a table wine.

Fresh, offering citrus, lemon sherbet, touch of herb and sea spray. Acidity is sharp - unusual for a variety not know for its acid, or ability to retain what it has - briny, with a touch of citrus freshness.

Does enliven the palate and wake the taste buds, concluding with a shell-like bitterness. Good aperitif, chill and make its acquaintance with some seafood. 89
