Manzanilla Señorita 15%, Valdespino
AppearancePale light strawy gold with light legs.
NoseFresh with gentle flor, a trace of dried flowers, and fairly saline minerally seaside notes. There are slight traces of rope, Palomino white wine, which gives away its youth, and a background savoury note.
PalateTangy with a nice balance of salinty and savouriness, salty and very slightly bitter with a certain depth and seriousness about it which develops and comes I imagine from the yeast and an almost imperceptible oxidative note. Decent length.
CommentsThis is the younger of the Valdespino Manzanillas with about three years average age while Deliciosa and its en rama sister have five years. It is labelled as Muy Fina meaning it is young and filtered and it tastes accordingly yet it has some depth and a more interesting character than some as it probably comes from Bodegas La Guita.
PriceAround 6.50 euros
