Producer
Bodegas Almocaden is unique in Jerez because it is one of the few Bodegas with a history of owning lands and vineyards. The ”Almocaden” vineyards lie between two equally famous neighbors, ”Macharnudo” & ”El Carrascal”. The soil found in this region is albariza! This light, almost white soil is composed of sea fossils and around 50% chalk - it retains moisture during the blistering Andalusian summer and reflects sun back to the vines increasing photosynthesis and raising potential alcohol levels in the Palomino grape. Growing areas with albariza are classified as Jerez Superior & divided into individual vineyards.”Almocaden” is an Arabic name which means ”Captain of the troops responsible for watching over the fields”.
