Don Benigno, Manzanilla Sherry, Sanlucar de Barrameda, Spain
Tasting Note: A good-value Manzanilla that would pair perfectly with appetizers such as olives, almonds or cured meat.
Pale-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of fresh brioche, butter, toasted almond, walnut, yogurt and bread dough.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied Manzanilla has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose along with notes of hay and caramel.
The wine is supported by medium acidity and completes with a medium-plus finish.
A straightforward Sherry that is good in its dimension.
The classic aperitif one enjoys in Seville, Spain.
Bottle Note: Manzanilla is a unique wine, produced exclusively in the village of Sanlucar de Barrameda located on the Atlantic coast. Aged for many years in the traditional “Solera” system, our Manzanilla has a bright, pale straw color, and aromatic bouquet; and a very dry, yet delicate flavor. Serve as a excellent accompaniment to all types of fish. Produced and bottled by Pedro Rodriguez e Hijos, shippers of fine wines in Sanlucar de Barrameda, Spain since 1821.
