Manzanilla-Sanlúcar de Barrameda

Manzanilla refers to a Fino Sherry that comes from the seaside town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda. The proximity of the sea causes the flor to grow even thicker here, resulting in a very dry Sherry that has a distinctive briny, almost saline note. Manzanilla Sherry is light and refreshing - it spends an average of only three to five years in the solera. It should absolutely be consumed while young, within at most a year after its release. It works fantastically as an aperitif, as it pairs particularly well with almonds, olives, oysters, or any other light (and preferably salty) pre-dinner fare. It should be served well-chilled in a small glass (called a copita). You can keep Manzanilla Sherry refrigerated after opening for up to two weeks.
