Appellation: Manzanilla

Varietals: Palomino Fino
Varietal notes: Palomino Fino
Vineyard: The grapes for this Manzanilla come from Pago Miraflores in Sanlucar de Barrameda very close to the Atlantic.
Soil: Albariza or a white chalky soil. When wet it sheds water to deeper soils and as it dries it "clods" creating a protective layer that slows the evaporation of water from below.
Viticulture: The vines are bush pruned in the traditional method.
Vinification: The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks in Sanlucar.
Aging: The wine undergoes biological aging under veil of flor for over 5 years in Sanlucar de Barrameda. There are 6 criaderas + the Solera. The solera is the most famous Manzanilla solera called Misericordia with a very long and rich history.
Notes: This is an "en rama" bottling which means the wine has not been fined, filtered or cold stabalized. It is as close to trying sherry straight from the cask as you can get!
