Blanca Reyes Manzanilla en rama

The polar opposite of packaging trends, this enigmatic creation has no visible label at all.

It is not one of the more aromatic manzanillas, but has a sweet aroma that is a bit more fruity than haybales – sweet dried herbs or maybe even dried apple flakes. There is also definitely some of the piercing cider/”catpiss” smell of the mosto coming through (I mean that in a good way).

A rich mouthfeel like a very light oil, then after the sweetish nose it comes across as tart – like cooking apples, then salty and savoury/herby in the mouth. Nicely balanced – tasty but fine and light, and long but fresh. I really like this – very good.
