Staff Pick Notes

Manzanilla is a dry, white wine made from Palomino grapes and aged under a layer of yeasts know as "veil de flor". It is produced exclusively in the bodegas of Sanlúcar de Barrameda. The special climatic conditions of the town, situated at the mouth of the river Guadalquivar, favor the formation of its uniquely distinctive characteristics. Las Canciones No. 1 'Mirador' Manzanilla Saca 3 was selected by the owner of Bodegas del Río, Luis, from 10 barrels so he could evenly select and not deplete too much from any one barrel. Bottled by Nick Africano, musician and founder of En Rama Sherry Co., this sherry is an aromatic gem. Green apple, lemon peel, chamomile and fresh dough which then evolves into apple blossom and honey suckle. Salty, fresh, balanced and delicate.

Like Champagne, Sherry can only be called Sherry if it comes from this specific region. That said, there are other “Sherry-styled” wines worthy of note produced outside of the Sherry D.O. (known as vinos generosos). Montilla, lying to the north-east of Jerez, produces some of the finest Pedro Ximénez in the world.

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...

Palomino

Accounting for over 90% of the vine plantings in Jerez, this relatively neutral grape provides the ideal “blank canvas” for the creation of fabulously complex Sherries (much like the Ugni Blanc grape does in Cognac).
