Palomino or Palomino Fino is thin-skinned grape variety yellowish-green colour originating from Andalusia in the south of Spain, and it is the most important grape for producing the historical Sherry from Jerez de la Frontera. It ripens early and has low to medium acidity and it is known for its neutral characteristics, which is very suitable for the making of the Sherry. Palomino is perfect for the Albariza chalky and lime-rich soils found in Sanlucar de Barrameda, where it was traditionally known as Manzanilla de Sanlucar and passed its name to the Manzanilla style of Sherry. It is often blended with Moscatel in most of the Sherry styles. It is to be found on the Canary Islands, where it is known as Listan Blanco. As well as in California and South Africa where is most commonly used for neutral style brandy.
