Vara y Pulgar
Vara Y Pulgar is produced with one of the most rare grape varieties of southwestern Spain. The Tintilla grape was cultivated in Jerez for many centuries; however, it, along with many other varieties disappeared after the phylloxera epidemic in the early 20th century. Jerez is famous for its Albariza soil, a type of chalk that is very light and porous. Vines that are tended in this type of soil make superior and distinctive wines.Planted in Albariza, Tintilla is able to ripen perfectly without showing extra alcohol or overripe flavors. It has a rare confluence of delicate complexity and medium to full bodied weight on the palate, with lovely minerality like other wines of the region. Recent genetic studies show that Tintilla is the same as Graciano.
