Mid amber with brassy gold coloured highlights.
Intense and forthcoming. It has that sightly wild and salty maritime aroma one would expect, along with notes of rope, flor and dried flowers, yet the effects on the wine of nearly two years in bottle are noticeable; it has evolved somewhat with hints of oxidation, esparto and caramel adding considerable depth. This is not some fresh zippy Manzanilla, but one which has developed considerably, with young Amontillado-like characteristics of almond, butter and salted caramel. Very complex.
