Manzanilla Señorita Irene 15%, Bodegas Yuste

Appearance
Very pale golden straw with a faint hint of green.
Nose
Soft and saline, gentle and fresh with lots of fresh yeasty flor. Quite young with a hint of Palomino fruit, but then the flor bitterness kicks in with traces of brine, a lactic note, hints of bitter almond and scrub, all nicely balanced.
Palate
At first soft, round and light, then the coastal flor exudes that classic yet restrained bitter yeastiness which again balances with a hint of fruit. Long dry finish with a slightly bitter twist.
Comments
A very decent Manzanilla. It is made from grapes grown in their own vineyards, the Viña Alamedilla in the pago Carrascal. I don't know anything about the solera yet.
Price
Not available in the UK unfortunately.

  1. Antonio Barbadillo Mateos makes his last sacas of Sacristia AB from this cellar and probably this solera
