Region: DO Manzanilla Sanlúcar de Barrameda, Spain
Barbadillo Solear Manzanilla (37.5cl)
Beautifully clean, brilliant and intense. Pale yellow colour with attractive glints in the light.
Appealing and honest on the nose, with intensity and finesse originating from the prolonged contact with the flor. Delicate hints of salty air and camomile.
Extraordinarily dry on the palate but then smooth and harmonious on the finish. Subtle, slightly, salty and with a persistent and pleasing flavour.
With its pale yellow colour and its light, fragrant aromas, this pleasantly dry Manzanilla is the perfect accompaniment to tapas, appetisers and a range of starters such as Spanish cured ham, artichokes, asparagus, cold and hot soups, shellfish and salmon..
In order to best enjoy the special characteristics of this wine, it should be drunk within 9 months of purchase, i.e. within one year of bottling. Serve well chilled at a temperature of 6º-8º C. if being enjoyed as an aperitif, half fill a tall, thin sherry glass in order to appreciate the delicate aromas; serve in a white wine glass if drinking with food.
