Manzanilla Deliciosa en rama Spring 2017 15%, Valdespino

Strawy gold with a hint of amber and bright gold highlights.
Serious nose; zippy, salty, maritime with notes of dried flowers, yeast, olive brine, traces of bitter almond, apple, butter and a light oxidative note. This is much more "hecho" (mature) than the standard Deliciosa and much more complex. Great start!
Very fresh, clean, mineral and saline with plenty of flor bitterness and moderate acidity. It is lively and tasty with an interesting mix of oxidative flavours and those from the cabezuela giving real depth, and of course length and a perfectly clean finish. Delicious.
Selected from the most interesting butts in the La Guita solera by oenologist Eduardo Ojeda at the Misericordia bodega in the Barrio Alto. There are 6 criaderas plus the solera. This delicious wine is approximately 6 to 7 years old. Grapes are 100% Miraflores.
5.00 euros per half bottle, Licores Corredera
