Notes from José Pastor Selections:

"Misturado de Cambria is a coferment of 40% Mencía, 40% Trousseau and 20% Palomino. The Mencía and Trousseau are from the Phoenix vineyard at Phelan Farm, where in 2019 Raj Parr grafted own-rooted Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines planted in 2007 to many cool climate varieties, including Mencía from Envínate’s Camiño Novo vineyard in Ribeira Sacra. The climate here is cold and marginal: grapes struggle to ripen, and harvest is in the last week of October. Soils are felsite and pink quartz. The Palomino is sourced from a biodynamically farmed vineyard near Fresno. The Palomino was harvested by hand, destemmed and kept in cold storage until the Trousseau and Mencía were harvested at the end of October. The Trousseau and Mencía were deposited in a stainless-steel dairy tank with their stems, the destemmed Palomino was added, and the three varieties fermented together with their skins for 3 weeks. Fermentation finished, the wine was pressed into 500L used French oak puncheon to rest. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, and with no added sulfur."

Palomino (harvested by hand and destemmed) is co-fermented with Trousseau and Mencía (left whole cluster) on skins for 3 weeks. Wine is then pressed and placed into 500L used French oak puncheon to rest. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, and with no added sulfur.
