Manzanilla is a dry white wine created from palomino grapes that has been matured under a coating of yeasts known as the veil de flor. It is only manufactured in Sanlcar de Barrameda’s bodegas. The town’s unusual climatic circumstances, located at the mouth of the Guadalquivar River, promote the growth of a specific type of flor veil, which gives the wine its distinctive qualities.
This particular Manzanilla is from winery Bodegas de Hijos de Rainera Pérez Marín. It is made with 100% Palomino grapes and possesses a D.O. Manzanilla - Sanlúcar de Barrameda certification.
On appearance, this sherry wine has lemon yellow with golden undertones and greenish hints. Awarded 94 points by James Suckling himself, he describes this as having: “..aromas of dried apples, lemon blossom, almonds and cream. Hints of seaweed. Full-bodied, yet focused and tight with lively acidity and a beautifully composed finish of fruit and flavor.”
