Fino style Sherries age under a layer of “flor” (a naturally occurring layer of yeast that grows on top of the wine in the barrel); this ensures the wines do not oxidise as there is no exposure to the air. The cooler maritime microclimate of Sanlúcar ensures flor grows particularly thickly all year round producing these very fresh, tangy Manzanillas, unlike the more oxidised Finos aged in the inland town of Jerez, where the flor dies back in the winter and summer months.
Pale straw yellow. Classic Manzanilla aromas, reminiscent of the ocean and fresh dough, are revealed on the nose. Fresh and dry on the palate, with good body and a lingering and satisfying aftertaste.
With its pale yellow colour and its light, fragrant aromas, this exceptional Manzanilla is the perfect accompaniment to tapas, appetizers and a range of startes such as Spanish cured ham, mild cheeses and asparagus. It also goes well with cold or hot soups, shellfish, salmon and herrings. Its distinctive flavour is perfectly suited to a range of other dishes such as cod soufflés, fish and meatdishes, melon with cured ham, salads with smoked ingredients, rice and vegetables.
Serve well chilled at a temperature of 6º-8º C in a white wine glass and enjoy as an aperitif or with food.
