The Palomino Fino grapes are grown on old vines in the high quality Miraflores sector; a gently sloping vineyard facing the Atlantic ocean, to the south of Sanlúcar.
Grapes which are identified as having a delicate and floral character are selected for Manzanilla. Once the base wines have been made they are fortified and aged under flor in oak barrels. The solera is located in Miraflores on the southern edge of Sanlúcar, a few hundred yards from the coast. This gives the wines a distinctive saline note.
Tasting Note: A floral nose allied to hints of white peach, fresh bread and tangy fennel and sea-salt characters. Tremendous character and complexity for Manzanilla, and a real step up from the large commercial brands.
Food Match: Ideal as an aperitif, with olives, sushi or prawns.
