"Dry and refreshing, with apple, straw and nutty flavours all underscored by a salty tanginess. Lightweight, subtle and balanced. A perfect introduction to sherry.
One of the best aperitifs served chilled in a wine glass. Ideal as an accompaniment to tapas, sea food, white meats, mild cheeses and nuts."
Established in 1792, the family owned and run business is now in its sixth generation, with Javier Hidlago in charge of what is widely regarded as the definitive Manzanilla house.
Extensive vineyard holdings ensure the best quality Palomino Fino is delivered from the bright albariza soils to the bodegas in Sanlúcar de Barrameda, where every step is taken during the long solera process to deliver excellence and consistency. Gradual biological ageing via the solera process under natural flor for Manzanilla and Amontillado produces dry, salty styles that are proving particularly popular in our ever evolving tapas-style culinary culture, where their ability to match such a diversity of ingredients is unrivalled and increasingly fashionable.
