Manzanilla 15%, Sánchez Romate

Pale strawy gold, light legs.
Lots of salinity and a real maritime air, this could only come from Sanlúcar. While it still shows some signs of youth, that slight fruitiness balances nicely with a hint of flor bitterness and wild herbs giving the wine a bit of character.
Light in feel but plenty of up front flor rather than acidity, though there is a touch, and a trace of that Manzanilla wildness, clean, dry and salty with a decent clean finish.
Sánchez Romate offer two Manzanillas, the up-market one, Viva la Pepa, and this more everyday yet very good version, aged for over three years. Being based in Jerez, Romate buy the wine in from an almacenista in Sanlúcar, as is the practice.
5.00 euros from Licores Corredera
