Manzanilla Muyfina 15%, Barbadillo

Very pale silvery strawy gold, very light legs.
Young, fresh and quite fruity with lots of camomile, then the flor kicks in with its saline bready notes and slight traces of dry scrubland, slightly sweet (fruity) and slightly sour (saline): an interesting balance there.
Very slight tutti frutti sort of glace fruit and a little acidity give away the youth, but it still has some complexity when the more savoury notes join in and the two give a really charming balance. This may be inexpensive and young but it is very pleasant.
This is Barbadillo's cheapest Manzanilla at 3 years old and for the price it is really good.
About 3-4 Euros in Spain but not, unfortunately available in the UK.

  1. Yes it is available in the UK ( Aldi sell it in my local store and more than likely others too. I live in Colwyn Bay in N.Wales and am currently enjoying a glass of this interesting stuff..I tell you what it has a lot of of depth of flavour, that changes constantly, waking my tastebuds up!
