Viejo C.P. is a single vineyard Palo Cortado produced with 100% Palomino grape variety from Valdespino's own Macharnudo Alto Vineyard. Its last criadera is replaced with selected wines from the first steps of Fino Inocente and Tio Diego Amontillado to continue with a long oxidative aging.

    The NV Palo Cortado Viejo C.P. produced from Palomino from the Macharnudo Alto is feed with specific casks of Fino Inocente and Amontillado Tio Diego. It was traditionally aged in the Calle Ponce (Ponce Street), and it has kept the C.P. initials since then. It’s not age-certified, but the average age of the bottled wine is 25 years. The color is old gold or light amber, and the nose hints at a relatively old wine, with plenty of lactic notes, sweet vanilla, iodine, bitter oranges and spices. The palate is clean and delineated, subtle and on the elegant side of Palo Cortado, ending very dry. Drink 2013-2016.
